Lawrence public schools contacted police after being alerted about a door-to-door sales scam on Wednesday.
A resident notified the school district that two young girls were asking for donations door-to-door in west Lawrence. The resident said the girls said they were selling magazines for a Free State High School drama club fundraiser in order to pay for a trip to New York. They said the name of the magazine company was Marquis Fulfillment Agency, and they asked the resident for $100, part of which would go toward supporting veterans’ hospitals.
Free State High School is not working with the magazine company and is unaware of the fundraiser. Residents should contact the Lawrence Police Department at 832-7509 if they are approached by the girls.
