Did you know that Gray Road PTF has the same gift cards available for purchase that you could buy at the local grocery, CVS, Walgreens or name brand store? Did you know that by purchasing gift cards from the PTF for the everyday things that you do, that you help raise money for our school and that this money goes to offset the cost of our school lunch program? We do this through a program called Scrip.

Scrip Cards are simply gift cards that can be ordered online anytime with our school code or via school order forms at designated times of the year. This program raises money while you shop, eat out or go on vacation. Many popular retailers, hotels, gas stations and restaurants participate in our Scrip program including Kohl’s, Sam’s Club, Wal-mart, Target, Panera, Starbucks and more. The beauty of this program is that you don’t have to spend any money that you wouldn’t already be spending. You purchase the gift cards at face value. Each participating business has designated a various percentage of their card’s face value and that amount is retuned to the school. Example… if someone purchases a $25 gift card from the Gap, 14% of that or $3.50, will come back to Gray Road. And it can add up.

Some SCRIP Success Story Examples

  • One family purchased all their groceries by pre-ordering SCRIP cards
  • One family remodeled their home and purchased SCRIP cards for home improvement stores to do so
  • One business owner gave all his employees holiday bonuses in the form of SCRIP gift cards
  • Many families use SCRIP for their Christmas and gift purchases
  • If you are going to be shopping during the upcoming holiday season anyway, wouldn’t it make sense to purchase a few gift cards in advance for the places you plan to go and support our school at the same time?
