    We're new a youth scouting organization (Not BSA, but very much like it). Between uniforms, dues/registration, and activities....it can be expensive first starting out! That's not counting awards and such. I plan their activities and summer adventures.

    I know...Pampered Chef has a fundraiser. Haha...yes, got that. But it's not exactly a huge money maker...sorry. I AM going to offer that idea to the moms in our group as a secondary option, but for what I'm looking for, it wouldn't work.

    I'm looking for a quick easy way to make some quick cash to help offset the summer camp/adventures we're planning. Our regular fundraisers are still in the works, and might not be enough to cover the older boys summer plans. I've got about 30 boys and we're looking at needing about $100 each boy for the things planned this summer.
    I keep coming back to the Krispy Kreme donut fundraisers....selling boxes of donuts and/or the BOGO Donut cards. I'd love to set up several tables at some area home improvement stores (Lowes, Home Depot, etc). We're a good sized metro area in NC with lots of small towns around...we have places to spread out, and no other Troops. Not many groups doing fundraisers this time of year either (a few sports here and there). With spring warm weather fast approaching in my area (I know- hard to believe right now since the news is all about the blizzard in the north)....I know those DIYers will be hitting the stores, plus contractors working more- and DONUTS are good! ;) I'm a contractors daughter...they like their donuts! haha

    Has anyone done the KK fundraiser at a store and if so, how well have you done with it?

    YES!!! I have done it for 2 years with my Relay For Life team and have made out like a bandit. Last year I actually had the donuts out at my booth with Starbucks Coffee. I had people hunting me down! I live 45 mins away from KK but I have a great man that drives out every year, picks them up, keeps his car warm and delivers them pipping hot.
    It is a 50% profit fundraiser. I highly recommend it!
