During the annual fall popcorn fundraiser, local scouts sell popcorn to their family, friends and members of the community to earn their own way in scouting. In addition to that, scouts will raise funds to purchase popcorn though the Heroes & Helpers campaign.

With the funds raised for Heroes & Helpers, popcorn is purchased and then donated to military men and women, first responders, doctors, nurses, police officers, firefighters and their families. In total, the scouts of the Gulf Stream Council were able to raise $28,741 for local heroes in 2022.
