Welcome to St. Peter's SFA Scrip!
What is Scrip? Scrip is a vital fundraiser for our school and CCD programs. Through Great Lakes Scrip in Michigan and many local merchants, we are able to purchase gift cards at a discount. For example, we are able to purchase a Hy-Vee $100 gift card (just like you see at the cash registers) for $97. We in turn sell these cards to our parishioners face value, or $100 in this example. Therefore, we have made a profit of $3. The best thing about this fundraiser is that it cost you no more than if you spent that $100 directly at Hy-Vee. Scrip is "Giving Freely" to the school and CCD programs. Over the past year, Scrip net profits were approximately $24,000!
How do you purchase Scrip? It is very simple! During the school year, a Scrip order form will be sent home every week with your youngest child in St. Peter's School. You simply fill out your order and send it with a check with your child to school. We will fill it during the day and send it back home with them that same day. Scrip may be purchased on Wednesdays when CCD is in session from 4:15 – 5:30 in the school office. Scrip is also sold at each weekend Mass. Simply drop off your order at the Scrip counter before Mass and pick it up before you leave. By purchasing your grocery money, gas, fast food, and entertainment through Scrip, you can make a big impact. If you have questions about Scrip call the school office at 421-6299.

Where does the Scrip profit go? The Scrip program helps fund "extras" for the School and CCD. The SFA Board determines each year how the school's proceeds will be spent. Last year, Scrip helped fund the purchase a new security camera system for the church/school and a new safety mat for the playground structure. Scrip proceeds also fund purchases of new materials for the CCD religious library, which is shared by the School and CCD.
What about the logo? What does it mean? The new Scrip logo was designed this summer compliments of designer/parishioner Dave Marks. By definition, to give means "to share". When you purchase Scrip you are in effect giving back to the church and school because of the financial benefit received from Scrip sales. Scrip customers are purchasing items they would have purchased anyway. Thus, they are "giving freely". Scripture expresses the importance of sharing and giving of ourselves and our gifts and talents freely to others—thus, the inspiration for the design of the new Scrip logo. Please consider "giving freely" by purchasing Scrip regularly.
