COVID-19 Affects Schools Nationwide

As schools face a difficult decision about when to re-open their doors this fall, AFRDS members are revamping their operations to safely and responsibly support fundraisers by parent groups, booster clubs, bands, youth sports leagues and other non-profit groups. Schools and groups earn $1.4 billion each year from product fundraising sales. This money funds a wide variety of activities and programs that enrich the educational experience of millions of children. 

We are hopeful that students will have the opportunity to return to campus this fall when appropriate safety measures and medical data about the virus make that possible. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to continue following medical community and government guidance to stay safe.
