Fuel Your Adventures with Popcorns
Why Poptober ?
- POptober is a way to raise funds for our Pack by selling popcorn door to door.
- It provides an opportunity to our Cubs to go out there and talk to their friends, families, neighbors, gives them confidence
- Teaches them a valuable lesson of life, learns how to take NO for an answer
- Cubs learns how to “Earn their way”; very important
- Chance to be recognized among peers and within scouting community; win big Prizes.
You can sell popcorn:
- Door to Door: This is a preferred and proven method and It Works!
- Customers see the Cub Scout! It is difficult for a customer to say “no” to a young Cub Scout in uniform.
- Begin your conversation by “Will you help me …”
- It gives the Scouts face to face sales experience.
- Scouts take the orders and submit to the Pack. We submit to District and pick up the orders at a later date. We distribute the orders to the Pack.
- Customers can pay by cash or check. Make checks payable to “Pack 758”.
Although, we don’t mandate this for our cubs, but we recommend each scout to make at least 5 sales.
Prizes and Incentives:
- Always wear your Uniform
- Always sell with an adult and/or with a group
- Never enter anyone’s home
- Do not sell after dark
- Always stay on the sidewalks and driveways
- Never carry large amounts of cash
