CALDWELL, NJ — As part of their month-long campaign to reach their goal of raising $15,000, the Cub Scouts of Pack 6 held their first of two Popcorn Blitz Days throughout the Caldwell-West Caldwell community on Saturday.

Pack 6, which is sponsored by Caldwell’s St. Aloysius Church, is selling Trail’s End popcorn and other edible products to support their pack as well as taking donations that will help support the military. Money raised will help the Cub Scouts pay for camping trips, hiking adventures, museum visits, science shows and yearly events like thee Blue & Gold Awards Dinner, Pinewood Derby car races and Soap Box Car Races. 

Each scout has a goal of selling at least $300 in popcorn products and military donations.

On Saturday, Cub Scouts, pack leaders and parents were seen throughout the community walking around their neighborhoods and going door-to-door to take orders for popcorn products and military donations. They also appeared at ACE Hardware, Jack’s Foodtown and ShopRite Liquors in Caldwell as well as Stop N Shop in West Caldwell. 

The next Popcorn Blitz Day will be held on Oct. 21 in the Caldwell-West Caldwell area.

Pack leaders and parents encourage all community members to open their doors to scouts when they see them in their neighborhood and also to come out to one of the four locations to show their support.

“This is a great organization for the kids in our community, but great organizations like this don’t survive without the help from their community,” said B.J. Kurus. “In the end, they’re not selling popcorn, they’re selling scouting. Kindly show your support.”

Popcorn orders and military donations can also be made online at www.trails-end.com. With help from their parents, scouts will be sending this link to friends and family, by email and social media, like Facebook and Twitter.

For any questions or comments regarding the Pack 6 Popcorn Blitz Days, contact Kurus at bj_kurus@yahoo.com or (973) 489-6332.
