Popcorn Sales are Pack 1483's primary fundraising activity. Popcorn enables our unit to deliver a top notch program. This is an officially approved council unit money-earning project that many packs and troops participate in each year. Sales take place from late August until November.
At the completion of our annual sales campaigns, Pack 1483 delivers some holiday cheer to local military members and their families. We hope to deliver at least $1,500 in popcorn to active duty members passing through the USO at Dulles Airport or to Operation Homefront of Ashburn.
In 2011, the soldiers were on the way home from Afghanistan for the holidays or flying off to faraway destinations around the world. In 2012, we delivered $5,000 in popcorn to Operation Homefront of Ashburn to be included in family care packages. The popcorn was bought from our own inventory using the military donations collected during the fundraiser.
Popcorn sales are for all new and returning Cub Scouts and families of all ranks. New Tigers will start selling immediately after Join Scout Night. Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos are selling to make money to pay for annual dues or for Cub Scout camps next summer. Arrow of Light scouts are selling to make money for their annual Boy Scout dues or for activities with their new Boy Scout troops.
