Day 17: Crossroads of America Council Boy Scouts of America

Central Indiana Boy Scouts are teaming up with the Indiana National Guard to launch the 2011 Boy Scout Military Popcorn Drive.  The Boy Scouts have a goal of distributing $350,000 worth of Trail’s End Popcorn to the members of the Indiana National Guard by the end of the year.  Hoosier can contribute at $20, $30, or $50 levels for popcorn.  The popcorn will be delivered to the Indiana National Guard by Scouts in mid-December.
