    Car washes, bake sales, garage sales.. coin sales (DH's group did this), T shirt sales (they can have them printed and sell them)

    Places like Chik Fil A and Hardees/Carl's Jr. do fundraisers.. Home demonstration companies (like partylite ) do fundraiser sales too.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    Challenge coins... your DH will know what they are, as they'll be required to carry one around..

    DH's mess had them made and had the selects sell them during initiation... I carried a bunch around and sold them. They make pretty decent money at $10 each.

    They would also make breakfast for the Genuine Chiefs every morning after PT and charge them for the meal.

    They would make dinner for the evening meetings they had twice a week and charge them for it.

    (They had to serve them according to their rank and seniority).

    My hub did all of those and they all turned out well. One of their favorite sales was "breakfast burritos" (which they took turns making) and bananas as a breakfast meal. He said they sold really well and turned a lot of profit. It was like $1 to make the stuff and then they sold the "meal" for I think $5, and it was a hit.

    I also baked a LOT Of chocolate chip muffins and cookies. Both of those sold well. He did say the muffins were a huge hit.

    Really, I think anything they can eat when they get to work and are hungry is a good thing!

    He also did pizza for lunch, which I THINK they got from like Dominoes. They made good money on those too.

    Lots and lots of car washes at the 7-11 and walgreens.

    Coin sales.

    Tshirts.

    I think that was it

    I can't remember what they sold them for, honestly

    I THINK they got the pizzas for $5 and sold them for $10? I can't be totally sure but that's what I want to say.

    The breakfast burritos were just like an average sized burrito with some scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese, and those sold with a banana and a small cup of juice for around $5ish.

    I have no clue about the coins but I think they probably run around the same amount for each command, so the guys he works with might have an idea. Tshirts are probably along the same lines.

    I wish I could remember, I am having memory loss on this one!

    The muffins were 2 per bag... I used the little sandwich bags, then tied a tiny piece of blue and gold ribbon on them to seal them, and I THINK he sold them for like $2-$2.50 (and I could make like 12 for $1ish, so it was good profit).
