The Sequoia Council sponsors a Popcorn fundraiser each year. The money raised from the annual popcorn sale benefits both your unit and Scouting throughout the Council. Some of the benefits of participating in the popcorn sale are: No financial risk to your unit (payment is not required until the unit has had an opportunity to sell and deliver its product), organizational support to the unit provided by the Council and financial benefit to both the unit and the Council. We are gearing up for our 2015 Popcorn Campaign and getting ready to start off with a bang!!First and foremost, Congratulations to all of you who participated in our 2014 Popcorn Campaign.You all did awesome and as a result, the Sequoia Council paid over $100,000 in commissions WOW!
