HPTC's SCRIP Program
FREE MONEY FOR OUR KIDS!
A Guide to Hemmeter’s Fundraising Program
What is SCRIP?
The best part about this fundraiser is that it costs you absolutely nothing to participate in the programs.
Gift Card sales (SCRIP):
HPTC buys gift cards from local and national vendors at a discount. We sell them to you at full price. You use them like cash for the full face value of the card (e.g. $25 Meijer gift card costs HPTC $24 we sell it to you for $25 and you spend $25) HPTC keeps the difference to fund enrichment activities for Hemmeter students. It costs you absolutely nothing but time to help HPTC raise funds for our students.
What Vendors are Available?
We have SCRIP in stock for around 100 places! There are cards available for gas, groceries, restaurants and shopping. Some of the most popular include Speedway, Sunoco, Walmart, Meijer’s, Wendy’s, Barnes & Noble, Kohl’s and Macy’s.
You can also use Kohl’s SCRIP cards to pay off your Kohl’s charge cards!
See order form for a complete list of local vendors.
How to Buy SCRIP during the 2012-2013 school year:
$25 Meijer gift card costs HPTC $24 ($25 x 4% = $1)
$25 Speedway card costs HPTC $23.75 ($25 x 5% = $1.25)
Please Note: Large orders of a single vendor may not be in stock. Stock is ordered on Tuesday and generally arrives on Thursday. If you need several cards from a single vendor, place your order by 10 am on Tuesday for Friday delivery.
Weeks with NO School on Friday:
If you send in an order form on Tuesday, I usually get orders back from GLSCrip by Thursday. If there is a Thursday at school, orders will be sent home with your child, or you can pick them up outside of the office only until 2:40.
There will be no scrip store on Thursdays, so if you want cards, send in an order form with payment!
Some local vendors may not be available on short weeks. Scrip will NOT be sold during weeks with only three days at school.
What if I’d like to Give a Donation Instead?
Using the HPTC 2011-12 budget we estimated the cost of scheduled enrichment programs to be $70/child/year. SCRIP is a very easy and profitable program. We encourage everyone to give it a try. However, if you find that it does not work for you, a cash donation is gladly accepted. A check made out to HPTC may be sent with a note in an envelope addressed to Emily Deibel.
What is www.ShopwithScrip.com ?
We have connected the Great Lakes Scrip company and all of our local vendors with you ~ online!
You can place an order for SCRIP at your convenience any time you choose. ShopwithScrip.com is an easy online tool that allows you to place an order from the inventory that Great Lakes Scrip carries as well as all of the local vendors you regularly enjoy from our stock. Once you have placed the order, I as the coordinator can see your order and either fill it from my on hand stock or add it to my regular order for Fridays.
I plan to place an order with Great Lakes Scrip on Tuesday mornings by 11 am. By ordering before noon on Tuesdays it ensures delivery of our order to school on the following Thursday. On Friday afternoons I will fill your outstanding order and send it home with your child (or other delivery method pre-arranged).
