Make a Positive Difference in Students’ Lives
If you want to make a positive difference in students’ lives, we offer a variety of other ways to give besides the Annual Fund and REACH Auction. In addition to parents’ commitment to the school’s Scrip Shopping Program, opportunities include volunteering or participating in one of our fundraising programs: Scrip Shopping, Amazon Smile, Fred Meyer Community Rewards, Target’s Take Charge of Education, Box Tops and Labels for Education.
Scrip is a volunteer-managed program that purchases gift cards from local and national vendors at a discounted price and you, the customer, purchase the cards from St. Patrick Catholic School at face value. You get the full value of the gift card, and the vendor ends up paying a percentage of the proceeds to St. Pat’s. We all need groceries, clothes, gifts, and entertainment. You choose where you want to shop and how much you want to spend, and a portion of the proceeds benefits our school. Learn more here.

Safeway & Fred Meyer Loyalty Cards
St. Pat’s has partnered with Safeway and Fred Meyer to bring our school money every time you use your loyalty card. Signing up takes less than five minutes. In the 2014-15 school year, St. Pat’s received more than $2,000 from the Safeway Loyalty Card (eScrip) and the Fred Meyer Community Rewards programs combined. This is all just from families using their loyalty cards while shopping. Imagine what we could earn if we all signed up? See the links below to register. Questions?

Box Tops & Labels for Education
Box Tops for Education is one of the nation’s largest school earnings loyalty programs and has been helping schools like St. Pat’s succeed since 1996. With over 250 participating products, it’s an easy way for us to earn cash for the things we need such as books to field trips to playground equipment. Each Box Tops coupon is worth 10¢ and they add up fast.
Labels for Education is another easy way for St. Pat’s to earn things we need. By collecting UPCs and beverage/sauce caps from over 2,500 participating products, we can earn points redeemable for arts, athletics, and academic merchandise.
