4-H fundraiser doles out donuts

Staff writer

Marion County may have many things, but it lacks a Krispy Kreme Donuts location. The Goessel Goal-Getters 4-H club rectified this with a recent fundraiser, partnering with a Krispy Kreme location in Wichita to sell donuts and coffee.

The club more frequently does bake sales and sells baseball concessions to raise money for local organizations, camp scholarships, and its own activities.

Goessel High School’s choir class usually is responsible for donuts, but didn’t this year because of COVID-19 gathering concerns. The 4-H club stepped in.

A total of 137 items were sold, providing enough money for six kids to go to 4-H camp and all 19 members to pay their yearly dues.

“This has been one of our most profitable sales,” said Rachel Boden, mother of Eli Boden, vice president of the fundraising committee.

Cambry Duerksen, treasurer of the fundraising committee, commented on how she liked the nature of the sale.

“I’ve already eaten some donuts,” she admitted.
