Do you shop at any of the stores that participate in the SCRIP Program (and/or will you be buying gift cards to those places as Christmas gifts)? Be sure to order Scrip for your regular gas, grocery & gift shopping plus order extra for Christmas. You get a $50 gift card for $50 and the company gives us a percentage as our profit. If 100 families bought just $200 of grocery store scrip each month we would profit $800. See the scrip order form for percentages from each participating business. Encourage grandparents and friends to buy scrip too.

OTHER ONGOING FUNDRAISERS
Labels for Education: This program is changing Fall 2016 but for at least through the 2016-2017 school year we can still turn in Labels for Education UPC codes so be sure to save those and turn them in to your child's classroom for the quarterly contest!
Coca-Cola Give: Most Coke products have codes either inside the box or on the cap. These can be entered at the Coca Cola Give website and they will make a donation to our school based on how many codes we enter. For example, the code from a 12-pack is worth $.15. That doesn't sound like much until you have 100+ families turning in all of their codes. Even a few hundred dollars could make a big difference to our school! You can enter the codes yourself and choose Rivergate or you can turn in the points to your classroom for the quarterly contest and we will make sure they get entered.
Box Tops for Education: Be sure to turn all of these in to the classroom as always and watch for Box Tops Bonus Programs! (List of participating products: http://www.boxtops4education.com/AboutBoxTops/Products.aspx). You can also register your store cards at www.growinglocallearning.com (Albertsons) and www.2ways2earn.com (Safeway) and www.rewardyourschool.com (Fred Meyer) to earn BONUS box tops. Sometimes the bonus is 250-500!
Santiam Labels: Save the UPC codes from any Santiam products you buy and turn them in to your child's classroom each quarter. They will send us a check equivalent to 5 cents per label which can really add up!!
Keep your eyes out for future opportunities to shop with companies who will donate a percentage of your purchase to Rivergate.
