Clip & Save
Scrip can be used to purchase anything from groceries, fuel, clothing, toys, and cosmetics to entertainment, electronics, home improvement, or household services. You can purchase gift cards, such as Giant Eagle, Macy’s, Olive Garden, and many others help you raise money for SGS.
All you have to do is fill out an enrollment form and purchase the gift cards. You buy the cards while earning money for yourself and the school. For example, when you buy a $100 Giant Eagle card, a $25 Cinemark card, a $25 Olive Garden card and a $50 Old Navy card (total spent: $200), you and the school just got back $5.88 each. (The total refund comes at the end of the school year.) A little adds up to a lot. You are spending the money at these retailers anyway so might as well earn some money back for you and your school without much effort.
Offering freedom of choice and versatility, Scrip is also a great gift idea for anyone and any occasion.
These cards make a great gift too. For a complete list of retailers, go to www.shopwithscrip.com. Be sure to enroll and start earning! You can register online and order Scrip yourself using PrestoPay, or you can order Scrip online by yourself and still send in a check or cash to the school office. Once payment is received, we will release your online order. You can also just fill out the order form and send it into the school office with a check made out to Saint George School by Wednesday, and we will place the order for you.
Please consider enrolling and buying your cards from your school. If you are already enrolled from the previous year, please just send in your order forms. If you have family members (not part of school or parish) who are interested in purchasing scrip cards, they can buy them here and have the refund go towards you or to The Saint George Fund.
Any questions, please call Elizabeth Fehr at 864-4821 Ext. 277.

Recycle Empty Inkjet Cartridges
Just because an empty inkjet cartridge is out of ink, doesn't mean it's broken. It just needs to be recycled. Empty inkjet and laser cartridges can be recycled into dollars. If your employer throws these items away, ask if you can send them to SGS for recycling instead. Drop boxes are located in the hallway by the entrance to the gym.

SGS participates in the Labels for Education program. The program awards free educational equipment to our school in exchange for proofs of purchase from the Campbell family of brands. Just cut the UPC code from the product and send in to school.
