Boy Scouts helping military

Press Release

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Cub Scouts and brothers, Hunter and Fisher Brawner, expand the annual Boy Scouts of America Popcorn Campaign for an entrepreneurial opportunity. 

The boys set a goal of 1,000 tins for the campaign that started August 30, 2009 and will end October 30, 2009. 

Realizing their goal would be too difficult through door-to-door sales, Hunter and Fisher used the idea of the Military Donation program by Trails End to achieve their sales goal. 

Trails End is the preferred service provider for popcorn, snacks and packaging for the Boy Scouts of America.   

Dubbed "Snacks 4 Soldiers", the boys launched their own website, www.snacksforsoldiers.webs.com 

To date, Hunter and Fisher have sold 40 tins. Like most siblings, Hunter and Fisher are very competitive.  They decided to compete against each other for the largest percentage of sales.  At their website, each has a referral code to use in the ordering process. 

Mom, Crystal Brawner, says, "The boys are truly selfless because they will forgo their prizes to keep the website up after the campaign ends October 30, 2009. 

They want the troops to know they support them always."   Hunter and Fisher's progress can be tracked at the Snacks 4 Soldiers website. 

Hunter and Fisher Brawner are members of Pack 324 in the Yellow Jacket District of the Chattahoochee Council.  Hunter is a Webelos II and expects to earn the Arrow of Light, highest award in Cub Scouting, by February 2010. 

Fisher is a Bear Scout and expects to earn his Whittling Chip this year, which will mean he "can carry a pocket knife on camping trips!"  

For more information about Pack 324 or "Snacks 4 Soldiers", please email Carson Comer, Finance Director for the Chattahoochee Council, at ccomer@scouting.org or call 706/327-2634, extension 227.
