Scrip Gift Card Order
October 8, 2018
First off, we would like to thank all of our families and friends that participate in the Scrip Program. Over the years, it has been steadily growing and we are looking forward to having it continue to do so. This is a fundraiser that does not cost us anything to run! The businesses that are offering their gift cards pay us a small percentage, a "commission", to do this. For you, it is the same as buying a gift card at the store. They do not expire and they do not cost extra. You have no idea what potential this program has to offer our school! There are local Catholic schools that are earning over $20,000 a school year thanks to their family participation in the Scrip program. We are not quite there yet but we hope to be. Ask family members, friends, coworkers - you could be donating hundreds of dollars without spending any extra money! You can purchase these cards to keep on hand for last minute gift giving; Christmas, teacher gifts, birthday, Easter baskets, Communion, Confirmation, graduation, yearend thank you's, Mother's Day presents - ANYTHING. You can just buy them each month for your own use to your favorite store like, ShopRite, Target, Walmart, Macy's, CVS, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks. You can see what percentage each store will donate directly to our school- and the donation is immediate! The turnaround time from when the order is placed is usually 3-4 days.
Our first order of the school year will be on October 15. After that, it will be the first day of every month with special order times around the Holidays.
If you have not already, please give the program a try. You can download the order for online and send it into school with your check attention to Scrip Program. Please make check payable to SRL PTA.
Thank you so much for your time and your anticipated participation. Every Penny counts!
Denise Iosue, SCRIP Program Coordinator
