Last month a student at the new John Marshall School knocked on my door.
Did my husband or I want any candy? There’s a whole catalog of foods for us to choose from.
For more than a month now we’ve been waiting on our peanut butter cups and white chocolate covered pretzels.
Often it seems that’s the way of school fundraisers: it starts with a knock, a call or an e-mail; continues with a check; and ends in a wait for the product so long that by the time it arrives you’ve forgotten you ever ordered anything in the first place.
Do you appreciate the chance for home delivery of candy or wrapping paper and the opportunity to support your local school, or do you feel pestered being asked year after year to buy into the same thing?
