SCRIP Gift Card Program

WHAT IS IT?  It is fundraising while you shop.

HOW DOES IT WORK?  The WNPTO sells you gift cards from your favorite stores, and you go shopping.  We purchase them at bulk rates, so we get a percentage of the profits.

WHY IT WORKS: The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school without spending a single additional penny.  Just spend your regular shopping dollars with SCRIP Gift Cards at the stores that participate in the SCRIP Gift Card program!  And SCRIP Gift Cards can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.

WHAT IS THE CATCH?  The hard part is rethinking your budget, and planning around the SCRIP order dates.  We will send out the order forms at different times of the school year.  You send us your order on a specified date along with a check to the WNPTO and we order your gift cards.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY GIFT CARDS? Approximately 1-2 weeks.

HOW DO I GET MY GIFT CARDS? You can choose one of three options: we can mail them to you in a self addressed stamped envelope, we can send them home in your child’s backpack, or you can pick them up at an assigned time and place.

WHAT IS THE BENEFIT? It is a great way to do your regular shopping or shop for the upcoming holidays, all the while benefiting the Page.  You do not need to buy anything you would not normally buy, just the things you usually buy, such as gas, food, dining out, and of course, all those holiday gifts!

Thanks so much for buying SCRIP, and let’s put those shopping dollars to work!

Orders are due Friday, December 2nd. Gift cards will be coming home Friday, December 9th.

Please consider purchasing gift cards for the Holiday Helper Program – Pettengill House. The gift cards will be used to help local families in need for the holidays. Great options for families are: Kmart, Walmart, CVS, TJMaxx/Marshalls.
