Key benefits about the Fall Product Sale:

  • We are selling “Scouting” and the many benefits that our program has to offer young people in our communities. We are NOT selling “Popcorn or Peanuts”.  This is an opportunity for our community to make a donation to Scouting and in return, we are giving them some popcorn. 
  • Scouting can be expensive and this sale provides an opportunity for parents to get help with the cost of the Scouting program for their child.
  • A Scout is Thrifty! If Scouts work hard in the Fall Sale, they will have paid their way through Scouting (and earned some great prizes along the way).  “Fund Your Adventure” and develop a great work ethic along the way.
  • It teaches goal setting, perseverance, builds confidence and enhances presentation skills; all attributes which are critical for Scouts, from class presentations to the college application/interview process and beyond.
  • It provides a substantial income to your unit and to the Cape Fear Council. Your Scout unit becomes a partner to the Cape Fear Council in making the Scouting program available to all young people in southeastern North Carolina.
  • It gives a parent in your unit the opportunity to become involved as the Sales Leader/Kernel. Cubmasters and Scoutmasters already have enough responsibility. Invite a parent to provide leadership to this great cause.
