To the Families of St. Bernard School:
Re: Grocery Card Sales
Many of you already know, but for those of you that are new to our school community, one of the ways we help raise money is through purchasing Grocery Cards. We offer cards from Stop & Shop, Big Y, Shop Rite, and Geissler’s, in either $25 or $50 increments, or $10 Dunkin Donuts cards. With each purchase, a small profit percentage is made. We sell these grocery cards at both the school and before and after masses at St. Bernard Church. Purchases can be made with cash, check or credit card. The addition of accepting credit card sales was added last year after each family mass to help increase sales and it has certainly helped out!
This is a simple fundraising opportunity to earn money for our school at no additional cost to any of us. Just last year, the sales combined, from both the school and the church, were $55,085; giving us a total profit of $2,853. We all grocery shop and with the variety of stores offered and method of payments accepted, why not get involved and start purchasing grocery cards this way?
A grocery card order form can be found here. The form along with payment can be sent in via backpack mail with your child and the cards will be sent home. No form is required for purchasing before or after masses. Thank you for your support!
