Ryan, one of the fund raisers we used to do when I was young was selling
sub sandwiches at school on a specific day. The subs orders were taken
and on the day they were to be delivered to the customers at lunchtime,
the families involved in the fundraiser got up early in the AM to start
making sandwiches. This one always went over well and made lots of money.
It does take a lot of work on the part of the volunteers, but if the
families are supportive, and missing a few morning classes can either be
tolerated or somehow avoided, then the payoff can be tremendous.
Publicize the sale by announcements well in advance of taking orders and
collect the money when you take the orders. Deliver the goods the week
after order taking closes. If your chartered organization does not have a
kitchen, sometimes a local restaurant that is not open for breakfast is
willing to let groups or individuals use their kitchen facilities for a
fee, you might be able to get one to donate the use of their kitchen for
a few hours in the early morning.
Hmmm, this is starting to sound like a good fundraiser for our troop!
