NEW YORK, N. Y. -
When Beth Hendrickson first offered to sell garbage bags instead of candy as a school fundraiser, \"People laughed at us.
\"They stopped laughing.
Hendrickson, St.
An Parish School in Ky Morgan field.
The school says it earns $20,000 a year to sell garbage bags.
It\'s not just the parents of the school\'s 230 students who buy these things.
Local corporate and government offices in Morgan field
Population 3,500-
Also buy garbage bags from school.
\"No one needs candy,\" Hendrickson said . \"
\"But garbage bags-
This is what everyone needs.
\"Selling garbage bags through bags for US dollars is just an option for candy --and-
Every fall, gift packaging sales are held in many communities when school fundraising efforts resume.
Some PTAs are walking higher.
Technology, using online platforms to collect and process donations, sell digital images of children\'s artwork on coffee cups or magnets, and host scavenger hunting where cell phone photos collect clues.
Some school groups have completely stopped selling products, but instead encouraged parents to simply write checks.
But others, like Hendrickson, are trying to sell unusual products.
Garbage bags were popular and when a company called Amadora asked Hendrickson about selling sheets, she tried it.
In the first year, the school sold about $16,000 worth of paper to fund new classroom technology.
Paper sales fell to $9,000 last year
After all, how many sheets a small school family needs
But the company has launched new prints this year, so Hendricksen will launch again.
However, not all schools have succeeded in alternative products.
It is located at Porter Road Primary School in Framingham, Massachusetts.
Try to sell organic food and items made of recycled materials through a company called Greenraising.

The teacher organization says Greenraising is a good supplier, but organic products \"don\'t raise more money like traditional chocolate and wrapping paper sales\", so they are looking for previous suppliers again
Some schools have completely canceled catalog sales and instead asked parents to donate directly.
Allison Olsen, former chairman of the sleeping Hollow PTA at the Va Falls Church.
Parents are working in so many families, she says, and people just don\'t have time to \"go out and let their children sell \".
When wrapping paper and candy come in, the school can\'t have volunteers sit there and sort.
\"Another reason to reduce catalog sales is that schools keep only part of their sales --

Improve dealers and suppliers.
A letter to Sleepy Hollow parents explains the shift, noting that \"the exciting part of this fundraising project is that 100 of what you donate is used to support the PTA program (

And it\'s tax free!
\"But there\'s one product that Olivier wants the school to continue selling: mug, T-
Shirts, bags and tricycles with images of children\'s art.
\"I like it because it has emotional value,\" says Oleson . \"
\"They did it before Mother\'s Day and the children can be proud of it.
Some parent organizations now accept online donations.
But this involves the third one.
Party sites that charge money handling raised the question: if a supporter can click on the link in the email to donate via a credit card, will it be easier than writing a check, or these costs would hurt lineMichael Nilsen, a spokesman for the Fundraising Professionals Association, saying there is no clear answer, but the best way might be to \"mix\", like a letter that physically sends home, you can choose to post back, followed by an email reminder with an online payment option.
He added that because online sites charge different fees for a variety of services, the appropriate site depends on the needs of the group.
For example, PayPal takes 2.
