In 2010, our cost for ongoing maintenance and repairs was higher than it had ever been. As our church gets older and things need fixed or replaced, this amount will only increase. In order to help defray costs from the ongoing maintenance and repairs, we have established a gift card program to turn our everyday purchases into a fundraiser for our church! This gift card program will allow everyone to raise funds without spending an extra penny or sell anything!
We sell gift cards from retailers & merchants for their full face value. That is – a $25 gift card for $25. A lot of these retailers are who you probably already do business with. You spend the card just like cash. St. Nicholas will get a percentage of your gift card purchase. The exact percentage will depend on the retailer.
- Giant Eagle 4%
- Sheetz 3%
- Eat ‘n Park 10%
- Macy’s 10%
- Kmart 4%
We ask that everyone try to at least use for their most used items: groceries & gas! Not only will you be able to order these cards directly from someone at church, but you will also be able to create an account, see what cards are available, and buy online at your leisure at http://shopwithscrip.com
A tally of funds raised will be posted in the church hall ongoing for this specific fundraiser! Let’s make it a success!
