Candy sales require no up-front cost and relatively few volunteers. Companies provide the candy and parents, family and friends can shop to benefit the school. The percentage the PA/PTA makes from the sale varies from company to company. There are many online companies to choose from that offer different products and plans; often, they do not require payment until after the candy is sold.
Please note that CR A-660 prohibits door-to-door solicitation of funds by children unless they are accompanied by a parent.
