Final Gift Card Fundraiser
April 23rd - Deadline
For a list of participating retailers, you can go to https://shop.shopwithscrip.com/Shop/Product or view the list via the attached pdf file. We also have copies of the merchant list by the parent mailboxes in the HERO Activity Center. Take note of merchants you use regularly. Choose which gift cards you would like to purchase. You will see that many vendors offer gift cards of various dollar increments. Please indicate which value you want and how many you want in each amount. The rebate % is the profit percentage that HERO will earn from each sale.
The company we currently use doesn’t have specific order forms, so people have been placing their orders one of two ways. One option is to simply print out the merchant list and circle which cards you’d like and how many in each denomination. Other people have chosen to write out a list and include that with their payment. Place your completed order request with payment in the payment lock box above the field trip folders. Please indicate that it is a gift card order on the envelope. Orders and payment are due by 4:00 on Tuesday, April 23rd. We hope to have them ready to distribute at HERO within 2 weeks after the sale closing date.
