EAST PROVIDENCE – Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts from across Southeastern New England have begun their annual door-to-door Trail’s End popcorn sales in neighborhoods across the region.
Packs and troops rely on this annual sale to fund their traditional Scouting activities, such as the popular Pinewood Derby and camping outings throughout the year.
“Not only does the annual drive provide funding for a number of Scouting activities, but it teaches our Scouts some valuable life lessons such as hard work, earning their own way, salesmanship and good communication skills,” said Marc Cardin, director of support services at the Narragansett Council.
As in the past, Trail’s End will offer customers the option of sending popcorn treats to U.S. Troops stationed all over the world, which means 70 percent of every military donation will also support local Scouts. For more information or to place an order online, visit www.trails-end.com.
