Popcorn

Boy Scouts & Trails End

For nearly 30 years, Trails-end has been in partnership with the Boy Scouts of America and their mission, along with the mission of the Bay Area Council, to help Scout packs, troops, and crews raise the money needed to fund their programs and activities throughout the year. The Bay Area Council has two consecutive sales in the fall: Show and Sell, which allows units to set up outside of a retail store for direct sales and delivery to the consumer and the Take Order sales, where Scouts go door to door in their neighborhoods to sell to the consumer with delivery taking place at a later date.

 

Why sell?

• Increase your unit and council income – 70% stays local.
• Pay for your entire Scouting program.
• Scouts learn valuable life lessons.

• There are loads of incentives like Top Seller prizes and College Scholarships.
• Sell online. It’s easy and a great way to sell to friends and family.
