2018 Popcorn Program
Hundreds of thousands of dollars go back to the Scouting program in the Sam Houston Area Council as a result of the annual popcorn sale. 70% of all dollars collected during the sale support local Scouting. The popcorn sale is a way for a Scout to support his or her way through the various activities during the year.
As a pack, we have a goal of each scout selling $100. That would allow the pack to fund activities such as the campouts without asking for extra contributions from our families. Lions are not expected to participate in fundraising, but can if they choose to do so.
