Wawa Lottery

Please read the information below for Wawa’s show and sell policies and procedures.


Sales Dates for Cradle of Liberty Council: Saturday, October 5 & Sunday, October 6

In order to be eligible for the Wawa lottery a unit leader must complete the Online Popcorn Form. The Unit will be entered into a lottery for a Wawa location of their choice. Each unit will choose the lottery pool they want to be in for their top 2 locations.

The reason for the reduction in available Wawa’s:

This is NOT a personal preference of the local store manager. Each store's Area Manager (within PA) has a check list of safety issues they evaluate before deciding whether a particular Wawa store is safe to allow people to stand out front. This list includes whether the store's porch area has enough depth to allow at least 10 feet between a table and the store's entrance doors, if the store has concrete poles to stop cars from entering the porch area, does the store have adequate parking available, and even crime/traffic accident issues, etc.  Unfortunately people hit Wawa stores every year with their cars. Wawa tries their very best to always put safety of their customers and associates first. 

Information for Units when at a Wawa Location:

The individuals that will be representing your organization during solicitation must be at least 10 feet away from the main entrance door and remain in the location designated by the Store Manager on Duty. No solicitation is permitted inside the store. A solicitor’s vehicle must be parked in the space directly in front of the solicitors and must remain there unless the manager requests that it be moved. An adult must be present at all times if minors are making the solicitation (only two minors are permitted at any time). All participants agree to abide by all rules and restrictions imposed generally by Wawa or by the Store Manager on duty. The solicitation must be limited between the hours of 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.
