    Boot drives always work for my department. Anyone standing at a store or a corner holding a fire boot seems to generate funding fast. Plus, there is much of a cost for this fundraiser, unlike dinners or car washes. You don't have to buy anything and it doesn't require much work on your part.

    Depending on your location you could paint curb numbers to mark housed in a metropolitan area. It helps them, and it could help your department in the future.
    Live life to the fullest and learn all you can while you can.

    And it they have the great educational benefit of teaching the Juniors how to get something for nothing...

    IMHO, fundraisers that don't require any work or actually give anything back to the public are just begging. That's not an ethic I'd want to instill in juniors because I certainly don't want them becoming firefighters with that mindset.

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.
