Scouts Grateful For Graebel’s Support Of Popcorn Fundraiser For 10th Year
Alamo Area Council’s 2013 Boy Scout Popcorn Season kicks off with Continued Support from Graebel San Antonio
“Graebel’s motto is ‘Helping People Move Ahead Worldwide’, and they sure made this real easy for us and our Scouts. The Alamo Area Council and all our Scouting community are grateful for Dan Dailey and Graebel’s support,” says Michael de los Santos, Scout Executive for the Alamo Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, based in San Antonio, Texas.
Be on the lookout for Scouts selling popcorn in front of various local businesses and in your neighborhood through Saturday, October 26, 2013. Scouts will have traditional favorites such as the Classic Caramel Corn priced at $10.00 and new additions like the tasty Jalapeno Cheddar Cheese that sells for $15.00. Seventy percent of the funds raised from the Popcorn Fall fundraiser go to support Scouting programs council-wide.

Graebel has a long history of supporting the community, especially when it benefits young people,” said Dan Dailey, General Manager for Graebel San Antonio Movers, Inc. “We are glad to help, and look forward to helping the Alamo Area Council bring Scouting to more youth.”
