The Trail’s End fund-raising program is exclusive to Scouting, and it provides all that a Scout council and its packs, troops, teams, crews, and posts may need, from planning and budgeting guidelines to training programs for Scouts and leaders, to the highest quality products available.In 1992, the executive board of the Northeast Georgia Council approved the sale of Trail’s End Popcorn as a council approved fundraiser. That year, the total sales of popcorn products were $72,603. Over the next 22 years, the Scouts of the Northeast Georgia Council have earned more than $8,500,000 in commission for their unit treasuries.
Our council continues to experience growing financial needs associated with maintaining high quality Scouting programs. We have a great sales program with Trail’s End that is easy and practically effortless. Together, with your help we can make it a success! Participate and it will strengthen Scouting everywhere! Trail’s End – a proven winner.
