The SHOPS (Shopping Helps Our Parish & School) program encompasses two fundraising programs.
The first is Great Lakes Scrips. We procure gift cards from grocery stores, gas stations and many major retailers and select merchants at a discount from face value. Parish and school families are able to purchase the cards at face value to use for everyday shopping expenditures. The difference is considered profit.
The second fundraiser, Escrip, enables families to pass on a percentage of their grocery bill at Schnucks Markets. Participants simply swipe a registered key tag at the time of purchase and St. Margaret of Scotland receives a check monthly. It’s that easy!
SHOPS is a popular fundraiser because families do not have to sell anything. Your everyday purchases can greatly benefit our parish and school.
Our goal is to increase the number of families who regularly purchase SHOPS cards and encourage parish and school organizations to use their Escrip at Schnucks when buying items for their projects and special events.
