How can a scout raise money? Beat the street and sell Popcorn using the order form you received in the mail. Setup a store front at Kroger or other grocery stores. Scout’s profit 30% of all sales, and the troop retains none. Example: if you gross $1000.00 in sales, you get back $300.00 in your pocket.
