This year, new legislation went into affect that reduced or completely eliminated candy on campus leaving many student groups without options for on-campus school fundraising. As a response to customer need Maredy has designed "Create-A-Gram" a simple, fun and sugar free on campus school fundraiser.
Lisa Moffat of Pine Grove Elementary said about Maredy, "For the third consecutive year, my fourth through sixth grade students at Pine Grove Elementary in Parker, Colorado, participated in a fundraiser candy sale for the week of Valentine's Day. To our delight, we raised $1000 for our school." For years Maredy has been providing the popular candy-grams that are sold on campus during the Valentine season.
What is the 'Create-A-Gram'? "We combined our popular large candy gram card with a fun and creative sticker sheet with words and pictures that can be added to the card to create a special message for the recipient," said Carlton van Putten of Maredy Fundraising Company. Van Putten added, "This addresses nutritional concerns by providing a sugar-free on campus school fundraiser for groups raising money during the Valentine season."
