This year, Boy Scout customers can again donate popcorn to go to U.S. military personnel around the world.
"This is the seventh year for our military program, and it's really a win-win-win situation. People can purchase popcorn for the men and women serving our country and support local scouting at the same time. And they will know they're benefiting two great institutions in one generous act," said John Wojciechowicz, council executive of the Allegheny Highlands Council. "In the first six years of the sale, over $36 million dollars worth of popcorn has gone to the military and their families as a result of the Boy Scouts efforts around the country."
This fall, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts will introduce a new lineup of Trail's End popcorn products for their annual fundraiser. Since 1980, Americans have supported Scouting with their purchases of Trail's End microwave popcorn and ready to eat popcorn treats. On sale in October and early November, Scouts believe the public will be pleased.
The Trail's End popcorn sale helps pay for local scouting programs in communities all across the Twin Tiers and the country, and Scouts enjoy a great return on their sale, with more than 70 percent of the purchase price going to fund local scouting.
The new Trail's End products have better flavor, are better for you and come in all-new packaging. And consumers will, on average, get 20 percent more product than before.
