      Squeegee Day Fundraising

      What we do is ask people at a local drive thru (we use the Tim Horton’s) to donate money to have their windshields washed. We have one person at the beginning of the drive thru asking the person if they would like their windshield washed as a donation to Cystic Fibrosis. If they say yes, our volunteer places a pamphlet under their windshield wiper. Once they get to the front of the drive thru and they have a pamphlet under their wiper, our team of two washes their windshield and thanks them for their donation. We had all the squeegees donated as well as the windshield washer fluid. We generally mix it 50/50.

      We generally do two locations from 8am-noon and generally make between $800 and $1000 dollars. A lot more than if we would have washed the entire car. We are in our 3rd year doing this. There’s very little setup (your pail and pamphlets) and it takes a very small amount of people to pull it off. We generally have 5 people at each. One person to ask for the donations and two teams of two so we don’t slow the drive thru lane down if we get multiple cars in a row.

      Although this example is for Cystic Fibrosis, it would obviously work for any cause. You can either have a stated donation amount or leave it up to the generosity of the driver.
