We have kids bag groceries for our organization at local grocery stores for fundraising tips. Have a coffee can sitting at the end of the checkout and give the kids some basic bagging lessons beforehand…no bread on the bottom, etc. It’s a great time and the donations are pretty generous. Grocery stores let us go into their stores and bag and carry groceries for tips. We make a flyer to hand shoppers at the door when they walk in explaining we are there to bag and carry groceries free of charge and if they choose to make a donation, please feel free to drop money in the decorated coffee cans provided at each register. The students bag the groceries and load them into the cart after the cashier has rung them up and offer assistance to load them into the customers vehicle.
