Popcorn Unit Fundraising


The Greater LA Scouting is happy to offer this popcorn fundraising opportunity. Popcorn sale begins at the end of summer and through the fall. Popcorn can help raise funds to help Scouts and their families cover registration fees and uniforms and create fewer out-of-pocket expenses for the families.


Greater LA Scouting and Trail’s End thank all the units and Scout families participating in the annual popcorn fundraiser. Your efforts help maintain our beautiful camps, fund Scout outreach programs and send hundreds of Scouts to camp each year who would not be able to afford Scouting otherwise.
