If you buy gift cards, then why not help our school raise money without having to spend an extra dime? Great Lakes Scrip allows us to purchase gift cards at face value and returns a portion back in cash to help our school! The amount earned varies between 1.5%-16% of the face value of the card. Cards and gift certificates are carried for everything from dining, gas, groceries, department stores, and online retailers. (Visit www.shopwithscrip.com to see over 700 businesses that are participating!)
Download the Gift Card Order Form from our site. Complete the form and return with your check or money order and return to the school on Monday. Orders are placed on Tuesday and usually arrive before the end of the week. We will order throughout the school year and even the summer.
There are a wide variety of vendors and most cards are accepted across the United States. Here are some of the companies:
You can even use Scrip to help with budgets for vacations or monthly expenses. There are gas, grocery, and discount store cards that can be purchased and set aside for use during the summer or during vacations. Perfect for graduating seniors who will be moving into the dorms or away to college next fall! If the company that you’d like is not on the order form, email Natalie Dodson to find out what to do to add the company and amount to your list!
If you look closely, you may notice these tiny labels on many grocery and paper items that you regularly purchase (like Cheerios, Kleenex, Ziploc, etc.). Simply clip them and turn them in to the school or your child’s teacher (each boxtop is worth 10¢). Ask your extended family to clip them, too! Last year, we raised over $1000, let’s continue to do more! A complete list of items that are included in the BTFE program, coupons and “click and earn” chances can be found at: www.boxtops4education.com. Please register on this site and then you will be able to track how much money the school has raised and you can even compare how we are doing against other schools in the area. There are also other ways you can earn boxtops online. Please note that we are listed as Sacred Heart Catholic School-Ft McClellan with a zip code of 36205.
In this program, the school earns points (1 point, 5 points, or 10 points) based on the product label turned in. The school can then redeem the points to earn free educational merchandise such as computers, software, sports equipment, etc. The points come from collecting UPCs and beverage caps/sauce caps from over 2,500 participating products (BIC, Campbell’s, Emerald nuts, GLAD, PopSecret and many more). A complete list of the points and products are listed at www.labelsforeducation.com. If you register on the website, you can track how the school is doing with points and also see the wish list. Please note that we are listed as Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic School with a zip code of 36205.
Each Tyson frozen food label that has the Project A+ logo is worth 24¢ to our school. You can go to http://projectaplus.tyson.com to check the progress of our school anytime.

Please note that we are listed as Sacred Heart of Jesus and the phone number is 2562374231 (use the phone number without dashes to “check your progress”).
