Scrip Gift Card Program = Big Money for Burroughs!
Tuesday, October 16, 2018 9:25 AM

Check your child's backpack for a flier and order form about this fundraising program with huge potential for Burroughs. Families purchase gift cards through the PTA at full value, and the retailers give a percentage ranging from 2-20% back to Burroughs PTA. 
 
Please take a minute to look over the retailers and see where this easy program could fit into your daily spending. The full list of retailers is available here and there is a laminated copy in the brochure rack in the Atrium, along with additional paper order forms. Pass along to grandparents, aunts and uncles, as an easy way for them to support Burroughs as well!
 
Two Burroughs families each raised over $300 through this program last year by using the gift cards for routine purchases at places like Cub, Holiday Gas, Starbucks, Petco, Lands' End, and Delta Airlines.  
 
If you plan to attend the Chipotle Dining For Dollars event on Monday, October 29, earn an additional 10% for the PTA by ordering Chipotle gift cards through Scrip to cover your dinner, bringing your donation to 43%!
 
Paper forms and online orders for physical gift cards are due by Wednesday, October 24 at 10 am and will be available for pickup by Friday. Send completed forms and checks with your child, or drop in the Scrip Box in the office. The next order will be due by 12 pm on November 9. Electronic certificates can be purchased and printed 24 hours a day online (once your account is set up).  
 
Please contact Beth Goodpaster or Lara Tickle with questions.
