Send Treats To Troops And Support Scouting

Operation Popcorn - Treats for Troops
As an Eagle Scout and current Cub Master for Austin, Texas Cub Scout Pack 2030 I am proud to be experiencing scouting with my two boys Evan and Ian.

Evan, Ian and I will be selling popcorn treats this year to raise money to support their scouting activities.  This is the only fundraiser that funds all of the scout activities including camp outs, Pinewood Derby, events at Pack meetings and all other fun events for our Pack 2030!  This year the boys are able to sell  “Treats for Troops” online and the popcorn ships directly to the Troops!
Please help the boys earn their own way in scouting and support U.S. Troops at the same time.  Just click here to make a $35 or $55 Military Product Donation on their behalf; you’ll find the Military Product Donation under Military Donation navigation tab once you enter the site.

From your purchase, Trail’s End will ship a variety of delicious popcorn treats all over the world to men and women serving our country. 70% of your purchase will be returned directly to Evan and Ian’s Cub Scout unit and our council.
The past four years:

Scouts Loading Treats for Troops

Scouts Loading Treats for Troops

  • Consumers donated over $32 million worth of popcorn to U.S. troops
  • In 2010 alone, consumers donated over $11 million worth of popcorn to U.S. troops
  • Over 2,000 tons of popcorn treats have been shipped to hundreds of locations around the world
  • Consumers placed over 54,000 orders online for the Military Product Donation

Online purchases help us fund fun, educational activities and help more kids experience all the things that make Scouting great.  Of course you can purchase treats for yourself or as gifts for family and friends.  They are delicious!

Thank you for your support,
John, Evan & Ian Boyle

Wow you were an eagle scout...that is outstanding!! What a great mentor you are for your boys and many other boys who are working towards their Eagle Scout Badge. Eagle Scouts show strength of character, and knowledge of Scouting. You are community driven and a leader. This is great

Awesomeness! I was a Cub Scout Leader, Asst. Pack Master, Brownie Leader and Junior Leader as well as being a former Scout myself. My grandfather was an Eagle Scout as well.

Props on being an Eagle Scout and for carrying on the tradition of scouting - so many great values and skills to be learned.

I have shared & will share your post.

Thanks Peggy. I knew there was some reason your were "Crunchtastic!" Hoping we can get some solid support from the social networks to send the men and women overseas snacks and raise money for the boys outings. Great cause and most of the money goes to the Scouts. Don't forget to order some treats for family and friends. I like the pecan caramel corn. :-)
