The New Birth of Freedom Council is pleased to offer the 2022 Popcorn and Nuts Sale for units to fund their programs and to help financially support their local council.   This fundraiser is held annually each fall and is a ready-made, turn-key, simple product sale that offers up to 40% commission to participating units.  We hope that through this sale we can provide a safe, easy way for Scouts to raise money for their future Scouting Adventures.  

This Sale Strengthens Both Units and Your Council!

In addition to the funds that will directly benefit units, the proceeds of this sale provide critical financial resources that the New Birth of Freedom Council depends upon to reinvest in providing service and support to units, such as providing two fully-staffed service centers with two Scout Shops in Mechanicsburg and York, three camping properties, a full-time professional staff, accident and liability insurance, council-wide activities and trainings, and much more.

By participating in this product sale, your unit helps build a strong and healthy local unit and local council, which will both build strong and healthy Scouts who will become tomorrow’s leaders!

2022 Vendors

The New Birth of Freedom Council is committed to making sure that we provide the best options for a successful sale and that means securing vendors that provide a great product, provide a great return to Scouting, provide excellent customer service and sales support, and follow through on their commitments.  We had a great first year with Pecatonica River and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for our sale this year.  We also look forward to continuing our partnership with Whitley’s Nut Company to provide the nut products for our fall sale.  

We can’t wait to share more with you about this year’s sale and introduce you to what Pecatonica River and Whitley’s Peanuts have to offer.  


Pecatonica offers great-tasting products, and all of them are available in attractive TINS or branded Popcorn Buckets.   Prices are competitive and reflect the quality of their product all while helping to support Scouting.  Most of Whitley’s core products will be available again this year.  We are working closely with our vendors to make sure that all of the products selected for the sale will be available to units.  At this point, we do not anticipate any issues with either vendor having to make any substitutions or changes to the product lineup that will be released in June.
