Declan Tsuyuki is a typical eighth-grader who is also a Troop 200 Boy Scout on a mission. In 2015, Declan raised over $8,000 in sales in the annual Popcorn Fundraiser sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America. He had the highest sales in the Mount Diablo Silverado Council, which includes Contra Costa, Lake, Napa and Solano Counties and portions of Alameda County. Declan earned enough in "campership" awards from the council and his troop to fund his 2016 summer camps.
This year, he is once again focused on doing his best and urges all scouts to always keep their eyes on their mission of raising money to benefit all youth in our community and beyond. The Popcorn Fundraiser will go until Oct. 24 and purchases can also be made online.
Seventy percent of funds raised by the Popcorn Fundraiser go towards supporting troop activities, local scouting programs, purchasing new equipment and providing financial support for scouts in need or in underserved communities.
