Krispy kreme Fundraisers
Another event took place in late April over a long weekend. This three-day fundraiser has been warmly welcomed in our neighbourhood, and we feel we have built awareness for this important cause.
The AEA members picked up 100 boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts and set the goal of selling them all over the course of 3 days. We were successful in our endeavours in fundraising for our current project!
We set up three locations at a local market, selling donuts by the box and singles by donation. Volunteers were also stationed at various exits to collect donations and hand out brochures.
Seeing how successful our first Krispy Kreme fundraiser was, we held another one in September on a smaller scale. We had different volunteers, some completely brand new to AEA; it was great to see new faces, and even though it was hard work, it was definitely rewarding. The location was Canadian Superstore in Richmond, where there was a lot of traffic. We handed out brochures as well as business cards, and were glad to hold an event in a different city!
