These are purchases you are already making on gas, groceries and entertainment, so this new requirement should not impact your family budget. Each family is asked to make at least $6,000 in scrip purchases between July 1 and May 31 of each school year. Purchases may be any combination of purchases on e-scrip, Safeway, Raley’s Quality of Life card, Luckys/FoodMaxx S.H.A.R.E.S. cards and purchase of scrip shopping cards. Scrip purchase commitments are due May 31, 2014. Our school participates in several different scrip programs. Every time you shop, you can earn money for our school. Here is what you can do to get started:
Purchase scrip shopping cards (gift cards) directly from the school. (Download the scrip card order form here.) The school purchases the gift cards from glscrip.com at a discount and sells the cards at face value. You may also go online to shopwithscrip.com and place your order; the cards will be available for pick up in the office. Our account number is 9CD1856533L16. We will carry an inventory of some of the more popular cards on hand for your convenience. You will pay for the cards when you pick them up in the school office.
Go to escrip.com and register your Safeway Club card. The escrip company will track sales made at participating retailers and send money to our school. Our school account #137612462.
If you shop at Raley’s, ask the office for a "Extra Credit" card. After receiving your card you will need to go online and register it to St. Mary's School. Each quarter, your point total is updated and you will need to bring a copy of the page that shows your contributions to the school office. Your total will be printed under the school's name on the top left. This is a no cost card that is shown to the cashier each time you check out.
If you shop at Lucky’s/FoodMaxx stop by the school office and pick up your S.H.A.R.E.S. card. This is a no cost card that is shown to the cashier each time you check out. At the end of the month, you will need to submit your final grocery receipt to the school office.
Family and friends are welcome to help support our program and all of their purchases can be applied to your scrip commitment of $6,000. Please inform the school office of their names so your family will receive credit for their purchases.
There is a Buy-out Option. Families may choose to pay $400 rather than fulfill the scrip commitment. Unmet scrip purchase commitments are billed at 5% of the unmet purchase amount.
