KINGSTON, OK - Kingston Public Schools said five different businesses have been contacted by companies that said they are raising money on behalf of the schools.
But the School District said that's not how their fundraisers work.
Superintendent Jay McAdams said that all fundraisers are approved by the administrators and the board of education, and they know who is representing them.
Assistant Superintendent Ron Whipkey said the school has worked with one of the companies in the past, but doesn't have an agreement with them right now.
They said banners, cups and memorabilia were some of the products offered to area businesses.
One woman with grandchildren in Kingston schools was shocked to hear about the false fundraiser.
"It's really appalling that somebody would come in and take advantage of people who are trying to support their local school and the youth in the community," said Linda Davis, who has grandchildren in the schools.
The Superintendent added that if you're ever unsure of someone who says they're fundraising, check with Kingston Public schools first.
