Fundraising & Service Hours http://www.stjschoolwilliston.com/news-announcements.cfm#ec_202968_4_short Sat, 01 Jan 2000 00:00:00 CST SM_4 <p>St. Joseph&#39;s School and Church both participate in the Great Lakes SCRIP program!&nbsp;SCRIP&nbsp;is fundraising while you shop. Here&rsquo;s how it works: a family will buy a SCRIP&nbsp;gift card through St. Joseph&#39;s School&nbsp;SCRIP&nbsp;program. They&#39;ll pay the full face value, but they&rsquo;ll earn an immediate rebate percentage that&#39;s typically between 3% and 15% depending on the retailer. Then they use that gift card on their normal purchases. You&#39;re not spending extra money, and there&rsquo;s no selling involved&mdash; you&#39;re&nbsp;just earning for your school!</p> <p>On hand SCRIP can be purchsed in the school office on Thursdays or after both Saturday and Sunday Masses. National SCRIP and special orders will be ordered on Mondays and will be available for pickup on Thursdays in the school office or after Mass on the weekends.&nbsp;</p> <p>SCRIP is a great way to earn service hours! For every $25 earned for the school, that family will receive a service hour! Example: If you purchase $500 in Cashwise SCRIP&nbsp;at 5% profit, you will have earned one&nbsp;service hour. It&#39;s that easy! If you have questions, please feel free to call Lacey at the school at 701-572-6384.</p>
