Snappy Partnership Brings Funds to Iowa Boy Scouts
Snappy Popcorn, an Iowa-based company known for its fresh, locally grown popcorn and range of concessions equipment, is celebrating the success of its fundraising partnership with the Mid-Iowa Council of Boy Scouts of America. In recent years, Snappy has helped expand and improve the council's annual popcorn sale, adding funds to scouting programs in Central Iowa.
Although area Boy Scouts have been selling popcorn since 1983, Snappy started working with the Mid-Iowa Council in 2015. The popcorn company, located in Breda, Iowa, approached them about having their own brand, which brings the added benefits of improved product quality, customer service and deliveries. Partnering with Snappy allows local Boy Scout troops to have a safe and well organized opportunity to earn money with no upfront cost.
Funds from the Mid-Iowa Council's popcorn sale make up a significant part of the funding for each unit and the council's operations. This money assists the groups with paying for needs like program materials, badges and camp fees, along with other council expenses. The popcorn sale is also a popular fundraising option due to its role in teaching valuable life skills for the Scouts participating.
This partnership is part of Snappy's larger efforts to provide fundraising programs for school and community groups looking to raise money. They offer large campaigns with custom-designed popcorn bags, or smaller options with the organization's name or logo included in a sticker on the popcorn packaging. Snappy's program has a low minimum order, which allows organizations of all sizes to benefit from selling through them.
"It's a source of pride for us to help organizations achieve their fundraising goals," said Jon Tiefenthaler, owner of Snappy Popcorn Co. "We're happy to support these programs designed to promote character and community building in a fun atmosphere."
