Produce in your sports team fundraiser
One of our favorite ideas for fundraising year round is local produce. Fresh fruits and vegetables are always a great option to sell within your community; they’re super healthy and a staple in every household, and with every season comes a new and exciting variety!What better way to tie the ideas of healthy mind, healthy body than to pair your favorite fruits and veggies with your kids’ athletics? Produce sales are also a great way to introduce new fruits and vegetables into your weekly recipes and share them with your community! On top of all this? Produce fundraisers are super profitable for your organization. And keeping it local means that the farmers in your community benefit from helping your organization, what could be better than that?
Flowers are a favorite in a sports team fundraiser
Flowers and plants are another great way to raise money in your sports team fundraiser whether your kid is a soccer star in the fall or a lacrosse legend in the spring. Mums are abundant in the through September, which leads into poinsettias in the winter, and finally spring hanging baskets. Flowers make great gifts and are a beautiful addition to any home or garden. Flowers, in addition to seeds or mulch are fantastic for sports team fundraiser because it’s so easy to get your kids involved in the distribution and the planting.
