Bill Allen, Popcorn Kernel
My name is Bill Allen and I am excited to be serving as Popcorn Kernel for Pack 345 this year.
This fundraiser helps us provide the best opportunities for our Scouts and the more we do the more funds we have available to do some great outings with the Pack. In order to keep our costs as low as possible and provide the BEST possible program year for our scouts, we need to raise over $20,000 from our popcorn fundraiser this year.
This means each scout is asked to help by selling about $500 of popcorn product in order to help us meet our goal. That works out to around 20-25 items on average.
Sell Popcorn Online
To get started selling online, follow these steps:
Step 1. Login to Trails End and check your account. Reset the password if you forgot it or setup a new account if you’ve never had one before. https://www.trails-end.com/login
If you didn’t get an invite or need to be added contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 2. Sit down with your child and create their online sales page. Really it’s just uploading a photo and writing a few sentences about them. To do this, once you login just click the Manage Page section. From there it should be pretty self explanatory. At the top of that section you can see the links to share all over social media or copy the link.
Here is an example so you can see what it looks like: https://www.trails-end.com/store/scout/KS0Z2G3Q?share=Y4SIY4TB
Step 3. Post that link on social media and email it out to your family and friends.

Sell At Show And Sell Events
This year, we will have opportunities to sell product at Kroger in Thompson’s Station as well as at the Hidden Gem Farmers Market.
Sunday September 12, 2021 – Noon to 6 PM at Kroger, 4700 Traders Way, Thompson’s Station
Sunday September 19, 2021 – 3 to 6 PM at Kroger, 4700 Traders Way, Thompson’s Station
And every Saturday from 11 AM to 2 PM at the Hidden Gem Farmers Market in Spring Hill.
Remember when selling, we ask all scouts to wear Class A uniform and that you are selling scouting (not popcorn). Offer customers the opportunity to help the local scouting program: “Would you like to support scouts by purchasing some yummy popcorn?”
One of our offerings that gets the most bang for the buck is popping corn! Check out some of our favorite Popcorn Recipes.
