St. Michael's has introduced a Scrip program to raise funds to pay off the capital campaign debt and build up the major maintenance repair fund. Our plan is to use the Great Lakes Scrip Center as our supplier. You can browse their website to see the companies with which they work at https://www.glscrip.com/shop.
Some of the merchants are Starbucks, Sprouts, Walgreens, CVS, Lowes, Home Depot, iTunes, Red Lobster, Cracker Barrel, Barnes & Noble, Chili's, Dillards, Sears, Penneys, Target, Walmart, and the list goes on for pages! You place an order for and pay for the gift cards you would like. St. Michael's buys the gift cards and you receive the gift cards (delivered to St. Michael's) in about a week. St. Michael's receives, on average, 5% back, but it varies by merchant. These are used like any gift card.
Orders and money must be received by Amy Gardner or Melissa Gray by the first Sunday of each month. The order is then placed the very next day. It is approximately a one week turn-around time to receive the cards. Also, Raisin' Canes Chicken Strips offers gift cards which give a 25% payback to St. Michael's. You won't find them on the list but the ordering process is the same.
