Gift Card Sales
What is it?
The St. Therese Parents Club is able to purchase gift certificates and gift cards from national and local businesses at a discount. The Parents Club then sells these certificates and cards to St. Therese families for “face value”, to be used just as cash. The St. Therese Parents Club makes somewhere between 1.5% and 40% profit on each sale depending on the business. When you give us $10, we give you $10 back in the gift certificates or gift cards for the business you request. You are not giving a donation; you are getting back exactly what you gave.
What businesses participate?
There are many businesses, both local and national. All of them are listed on the order form, but some of most popular are: Safeway, Fred Meyer, Olive Garden, McMenamins, Newport Bay, Starbucks, Home Depot, Regal Theaters, Dennis Uniforms, Hong Phat Market, Cold Stone Creamery, Elmer’s, Burgerville, Applebees, Burger King, Red Robin, Shari’s and Quiznos.
How does this benefit my family?
The money that is raised through Scrip sales helps the St. Therese Parents Club meet the budget that the Parish Finance Council sets in the school budget. This helps keep the tuition down at our school. Each school family is required to purchase $2,000 per year, per family for our school! $1,000 for single parents.
What do I do?
Come into the School Office before or after school to purchase Scrip that we carry on-hand. Or you can fill out the larger Monthly Scrip Order that goes out in the Thursday Packet each month.
What if I have questions?
Please feel free to call Sue Walsh at 503-253-9400 if you have any questions.
Gift cards and certificates are one of our easiest fundraising programs at St. Therese School. St. Therese School requires all families to participate in the Gift Card Sales program by purchasing a total of $2,000 per school year in Gift Cards. $1,000 for single parents. When families purchase gift cards from our school, they are not paying any more than the value of the gift card, but the participating businesses donate between 1.5% (gas cards) and 43% (Krispy Kreme) back to our school!
We have several Gift Cards available for purchase everyday at the school. When the school is closed for vacations the Gift Cards are available at the Parish Office. We also purchase special orders at the beginning of each month from a larger list of suppliers. Please click on the links above to view the most current order forms.
Thank you for your support of St. Therese School!
