Our founder, Melvin (Mel) Kleinhenn, began serving schools in 1940. In the beginning, students sold various items including greeting cards and would receive a bible as a reward. Mel became affectionately known as the “Bible Man”. Soon, schools began to ask if he could provide products to be sold to raise funds for their school or organizations. It was from those request that the company began what is now Kleinhenn Fundraising.
