The annual Trails End fundraiser runs late summer through late November and is a great way for each Scout to earn their way and fund all of the adventures that await them in the next year. Trails End offers great sales tools for Scouts as well as units, including an easy online dashboard, a seller’s app, integration with the Square credit card reader, and more. Read on for important resources and information from Garden State Council to help your unit and Scouts have a successful popcorn sale season!
When our Scouts learn how to sell online, they reach more customers, offer direct fulfillment, and learn modern digital techniques that they can apply to other parts of their lives. Visit Trails End’s Scouts page to learn more and start selling today!
