It doesn’t matter what sports club or organization your child is involved in, they all seem to have additional fundraising obligations linked to them.  The shame is that while they are involved in a sport, they are required to sell chocolate almonds, candy, cookie dough, etc to raise insubstantial funds for the organization.
