SCRIP CARDS

Do you buy groceries at Whole Foods, King Soopers, Safeway, Lucky’s Market or Vitamin Cottage?  Do you shop at Liquor Mart?  Casey PTA has gift cards for all of these stores in inventory.  At no extra cost to you, you can purchase the cards and each store gives Casey PTA a rebate.  It’s the easiest way to help support Casey PTA.  King Soopers, Safeway and Lucky’s are all reloadable at the store, so every time you shop, you are supporting Casey PTA.  Contact Ginny Bank (ginny.bank@gmail.com) to get your cards!  And don’t forget Casey’s Scrip program. We will be doing two more orders in the last quarter. One will be in late April and another in late May.

CHECK OUT CASEY'S  NEW AND IMPROVED GROCERY/RETAIL CARD PROGRAM 
Casey’s easiest fundraiser has gotten even better! We have grocery cards for King Soopers, Whole Foods and Safeway (all reloadable), Lucky’s and Vitamin Cottage. In addition, we also have retail cards for dozens of local restaurants and retailers through our new Scrip program. Simply purchase the cards and the company gives back 3-14% to Casey PTA.
Last spring, the Scrip program raised close to $500 for Casey PTA with only 9 families participating. It’s easy to join, and the retail list includes many favorites like Home Depot, Starbucks, Chipotle Grill, Sprouts Market and California Pizza Kitchen. For a list of local retailers and information on how to get started, go to SCRIPS.pdf
We place a scrip order on the 20th of every month. Grocery cards are always available. Contact ginny.bank@gmail.com for more information on Scrip or Grocery Cards.
