Popcorn Fundraiser

Posted on Sep 30 2022 - 12:32pm

Troop 619 is selling popcorn.  We are doing it a little different then years past.  We will not be standing in front of stores selling.  Instead we sent home order sheets.  We ask that each scout sell at least 2 items.  Collect monies as you take the order!  

Our troop gets a % of these sales to help pay for camps and events.  Our council also gets a % of the sales.  This money helps to keep our council going and maintain our council camps.   

Any questions, contact Christina @ jcbrax@gmail.com
