Unit and Adult Leader Area
Welcome to our unit and adult leader area. Thank you for chosing the Trail's End popcorn sale as your major fundraising activity for the year. By selling Trail's End popcorn not only will your unit be able to raise all the money it needs for your Ideal Year of Scouting, but your Scouts can also earn awesome prizes just by selling! Over 73% of the popcorn sale goes to support Scouting here in the Denver Community. More than any other fundraiser out there, the popcorn sale is what you can participate in to keep the cost of Scouting at a minimum. In 2015, $2.4 million of popcorn was sold in the Denver Area because of your support.
