What’s the most unusual thing your child has sold as a school fundraiser?
I just spotted this Associated Press story on school fundraising, which includes an anecdote about a school that raised $20,000 by selling … garbage bags.
“Nobody needs candy,” the story quotes the school’s principal as saying. “But trash bags—that’s something everybody needs.”
The story mentions other ways some schools are branching out to raise money. For example, some are soliciting donations online or selling items featuring digital images of kids’ artwork, it says.
What are your schools doing? Do you stick to the tried-and-true fundraisers like candy or sandwiches, or are your schools looking for new items to sell?
