Scrip

SCRIP is a term used for prepaid gift cards or certificates that spend like cash. These are the same cards you buy at Vons, Ralphs and many other merchants.  However, when you purchase SCRIP through the PTA a percentage of the proceeds go directly back to Meadows – from 2 to 20% per card from places like Vons, Grow, Whole Foods, Patterson Cleaners, Mama D’s, Tin Roof, Amazon, and so many more!  You receive full face value of the cards so using SCRIP costs you nothing except a little planning!!  

Last year Meadows families raised $13,800 just by shopping with SCRIP!!  We can easily double that if everyone participates.  (psst… Other MB elementary schools our size make $30,000+ per year on SCRIP – we can certainly do as well if everyone uses SCRIP regularly!  Don’t delay, start today.
