As in years past, the PTL will be selling Scrip gift cards to over 400 different stores and online retailers. With each purchase, OLL earns a percentage of what we spend. We never pay more than the face value of the cards. Think of it as spending money you would already be spending at the grocery store, gas station, pharmacy, etc, except that OLL receives a portion of your spending free of charge to you. It's also a great way to keep a small stash of gift cards on hand for birthdays, Christmas, etc., especially since the gift cards have no expiration date. This year, we are earmarking proceeds from Scrip to go towards fun and educational assemblies and activities for the kids, like the Mad Science Guy! During the 2015-16 school year, we raised over $8,000! If all OLL families do their part this year, our school could earn approximately $6,000* in Scrip alone!
For the 2016-17 school year, we have DECREASED the participation requirements as follows: every family with a child(ren) in Pre K and above is required to take part in the gift card program by purchasing a minimum of $600 in gift cards over the school year, reduced from $1,000 per family last year.
For the 2016-17 school year, we have also DECREASED the opt-out fee to $50, reduced from $150 last year. If you choose to not participate in Scrip, you may opt out by completing this form and sending a check made payable to OLL PTL to the School Office in an envelope marked "OLL PTL - SCRIP OPT OUT" as soon as possible.

OLL makes monthly orders of Scrip to save on shipping charges. Family orders received in the office by the monthly deadline (on or around the 15th of the month - see the PTL Calendar for actual dates) should be delivered within a week. Family orders received in the office after the monthly deadline will be fulfilled the next month. Note: There will be an additional order placed early in December to accommodate Christmas orders and an additional order in May to help families reach their participation requirements before year end.
If you have any questions regarding the Gift Card Program, please contact Anna Sullivan at Anna Sullivan or OLL PTL.
Thank you for supporting Our Lady of Lourdes School and the PTL!
