Each year, thousands of boy scouts, cub scouts, school groups, christian youth groups, High School Marching Bands and youth athletic teams utilize our Christmas Wreath Fundraiser to earn money to sustain their members through the years. Mickman Brothers strives to bring you current, useful fundraising tips, steps and information to help you have the most successful fundraising season to date!
Groups have achieved success by enlisting the support of their Church
Communities to help fund their activities. This is particularly true if your
group is directly affiliated with a church, or if your group is sponsored by a
church. However, even if your group isn’t, the Fundraising Committee can ask
for the support of their own churches to assist your organization in achieving
its fundraising goals.
The Victorian Wreath
A Sample Wreath is one of
the best ways to obtain sales—and is available at NO CHARGE. If your
congregation has a time after Sunday services when coffee and donuts are
served, this is a great time to display the sample and take orders. The
fragrance of the Balsam Fir, the full rich look of the Wreath, and the texture
of our highest quality Bows—all make these products easy to sell. Keep in mind
that you are offering a delivered product that most people would like to have,
at a price that is less than retail PLUS they are supporting your group.
Who could resist!
The Fundraising Poster is
an excellent way to announce to members of your congregation that you are
having a Fundraiser. Be sure to highlight on the Poster how to place orders and
the Sunday date of pick-up
Other Church Groups
One of the best ways to
enlist the support of your congregation is to seek the advice of your Pastor.
As the leader of your Church Community, they will be able to guide you on the
best ways to promote your Christmas Wreath Fundraiser. There are probably other
groups such as the Men’s Club or Choir Group that would welcome the chance to
purchase a Christmas Wreath to support the activities of your group.
Remember, the Wreath is a traditional symbol of friendship and
hospitality. What a wonderful way to promote fellowship within your Church
During the sale after
Sunday Services, be sure to offer Holiday Gift Products (HGP) to the members of
your Congregation. What a perfect Christmas Gift, at a reasonable cost, for the
family and friends of your congregants! To facilitate the sale of HGPs to
your Congregation, make sure you have HGP Order Forms available for them

to worry about distribution of the product—Mickman Brothers will send the

Shop’ via FedEx.
