What is Great Lakes Scrip?
Scrip is "shopping cart fund raising." When the Parishioners purchase "Scrip" they are purchasing negotiable gift certificates that are used like cash. The Gift certificates are for retailers all over the city, and the country. You can use them to purchase gas, groceries, clothes or whatever you need and the church gets a percentage of the sale.
Participation is voluntary. You can place an order at any time and, there is no minimum order amounts and no obligation. However orders MUST be placed at the church. You cannot go to the store and purchase a card.
Placing your order:
Order forms are available in the Gathering Space and must be filled out completely. Orders and payment can be dropped in the collection baskets or dropped off at the office. Please place the order in an envelope marked "GLS" or "SCRIP". Orders must be paid for in advance. Orders can be paid for with cash, check or money order. Checks are to be made out for the TOTAL amount and payable to OLM. You do not need to write a separate check for each card. If your check is returned because of non-sufficient funds you will be charged a $20.00 fee payable to OLM. After 2 NSF checks are tendered on your account your scrip order privileges will be limited to cash or money order. Orders will be picked up, by the coordinator Sunday afternoon by 1P.M. Orders placed after this time will be held until the next order is placed.
Picking up your order:
Filled orders can be picked up in the church office after masses the following Sunday. You must present photo ID to pick up your order.
After verifying your order, you will be asked to sign a receipt indicating that you received your order and it was correct. Cards cannot be mailed. You will be notified when orders are ready to be picked up. Usually the following weekend after all the masses. In the unlikely event that there is a discrepancy please contact Peggy Jacquel or Donna Clark within 7 days.
The order form we provide has some of the participating stores. You can pick up a complete list of retailers from the table in the gathering space or you can visit the website at www.glscrip.com
SCRIP certificates are the same as cash and should be handled accordingly. OLM will not be responsible for certificates that are lost, stolen or misplaced while in your possession.
In an attempt to keep everyone informed we will be putting inserts in the bulletin and sending e-mails to participants with updates and specials.
If you have any questions about the SCRIP Program please contact Peggy Or Donna.
