Bagging groceries is a fun way to raise money for your team or school. It’s super simple, and a lot of major grocery stores already have everything you need to know set up. This kind of fundraiser works great for teams, and even though it’s not a great way to raise a whole lot of money, it really gives kids a sense of contributing to a cause that’s important to them. 


What you need before your fundraising event: 

Your fundraiser's success depends on two things: your volunteers, and your supporters. Send out a notification to parents of your volunteers to make sure that they know when their kids need to be available for this fundraiser. You'll also want to notify your community as a whole, so they do their shopping on the day of your fundraiser! Have your volunteers wear their team jerseys, or the same color so they are easily identified. Have a few parents on hand to help the event run smoothly and keep all of your volunteers in check. 


How to coordinate your fundraiser with your local store:

Contact the store manager of your local grocery store and ask if you can host your event on a weeknight or over the weekend. Get your team to dress up in their gear so that shoppers can identify them. Your students bag the groceries, and/or carry them to the customer's vehicle. Donations are entirely voluntary, and make sure your students tell this to the customers.Only schedule the fundraising event for a few hours. And if you can, don’t have it during rush hour times. 


What you'll need for your fundraiser:

The only thing you need to bring for your fundraiser is a donation box per volunteer, so that your supporters can donate to your cause.
