How to Host a Drive-Thru Fundraiser


Looking for a great way to distribute your Affy Tapple Caramel Apples this year? Try hosting a Drive-Thru Affy Tapple Day in your school parking lot! This way, parents can easily and safely pick up their Caramel Apple orders. Here's how:

  1. Collect your individual orders using our Fundraising Toolkit and call Affy Tapple at (847) 588-2900 to place your bulk order
  2. Send an email to the parents who ordered letting them know what day the Drive-Thru Affy Tapple Day will take place and where
  3. Have your apples delivered to the location of your choosing and sort by family 
  4. Place each order in Affy Tapple-supplied bags, writing the family name on the bag
  5. Create a pickup line with tables in your parking lot (you know the drill)
  6. Have the families write their name on a piece of paper and place in the car window (again, you know the drill 😊)
  7. Place the bags of delicious Affy Tapple apples and treats in their trunk and off they go!
