Fundraising other than sales

Our town is inundated with sales...schools, sports, clubs, scouts.
I am looking for alternate ideas. In researching the fundraising FAQ, I
saw some things about providing a service. ie. grocery bagging.
I am 1. Looking for other ideas. The boys are tired of selling and the
town is sold out
2. Opinions on boy scouts providing a "service" say such as mowing
the lawn at the local grocery store or businesses. This would be
something the business would be paying for anyway. Are there concerns
about boy labor? I would of course ensure 2 deep adult supervision.
I saw a posting about flag poles around town and would be interested in
learning how that might work in a middle to low income, 10-15,000 pop.
I also hesitate to approach local businesses for something like ad books
or placemats. They are all very generous to as many organizations as
they can. I want to get back to the old theory of: A SCOUT PROVIDING A
VALUE FOR THE DOLLAR. So I have a problem with bike, hike, and skate-a-thons.
Please lend me your wisdom!!!
