To help the residents raise money for an excursion or activity that they would like to have or attend a penny carnival may be just the fundraiser you need. A penny carnival is a carnival that sells handmade or homemade baked goods along with a few simple games to raise money. Since summer is approaching, this is the best time for the carnival. You could post flyers around your community and on your social networks to be sure that you will get many visitors. The residents will feel fulfilled because they get to work again for something.
