Thank You for Donating Popcorn to our Troops!

MEANSVILLE - In early December, Boy Scout Troop 37 offered an opportunity for the community to send popcorn to a local public service branch within our District (Fire, Police, EMS) or our local National Guard Armory out of Griffin.

The call went out, and the community responded with popcorn being donated to local troops who are currently serving overseas.

"I would like to thank those that supported the efforts of Troop 37 in Meansville, Ga with providing a little bit of home to our brave men and women serving in Afghanistan," said Steve Bryant, Assistant Scout Master from Troop 37. "With your generous donations you helped us put smiles on the faces of those in the B Company 2 of the 121st infantry over the Christmas and New Year holiday."

“Thank you to your Boy Scout Troop 37 for the generous donation of popcorn for our B Company 2/121st IN out of Newnan, Georgia. They were thrilled to accept the popcorn and enjoyed it during their train up for deployment at Fort Stewart, Georgia. Pictured are three of the 60+ soldiers from B Company that have now left on deployment to Afghanistan," said Kristina Justice, Family Assistance Specialist, Military Family Support Branch, J-1. "

"This would not have been possible without your support," Assistant Scout Master Bryant said.

Want to Donate Popcorn to Public Service or our Military?

ZEBULON - As many of you may be aware the Boy Scouts of America has two major fundraisers each year: Camp Cards in the spring and Popcorn in the fall. With each of these fund raisers these BSA Scouts are learning several skills without even realizing it including learning how to interact with strangers, how to accept rejection, and how to become self-sufficient in earning their own way financially in their scouting career.

With the fall Popcorn fundraiser coming to an end, BSA Troop 37 would like to offer those that are interested an amazing donating opportunity. Between now and December 7, 2018, any of the remaining Popcorn purchased from Troop 37 will be donated to either a local public service branch within our District (Fire, Police, EMS) or our local National Guard Armory out of Griffin. “We want to give back to those that are putting themselves on the line every day away from their families so that we all can be with our families,” said Assistant Scout Master Stephen Bryant.

In our remaining inventory, we have a Cheddar Trio, Popping Corn, Unbelievable Butter microwave, Caramel Corn, and White Cheddar. The prices on the individual items range from $10 up to $35 and your total donation could be up $600 based on our current inventory. Tax receipts are available upon request.

For any further detailed information or to arrange a donation, please contact Assistant Scout Master Stephen Bryant at 404-809-1386 or by email at buffalo926@gmail.com. Thank you.
