General Interest... Our Scrip Program
Scrip is effectively a Gift Card. St. David's purchases the Gift Card at a discount (1.5% - 10%) and sells them to our members at face value.
Do you regularly get gasoline at Marathon ??
Buy either a $25 or $50 or $100 Marathon gas gift card using personal check or cash.
St. David's gets 75c for a $25 card, $1.50 for a $50 card, or $3 for a $100 card.
If you use a $25 gas card each week for gas, over the year the church will have gotten $39 - if 100 people do this, St. David's will receive $3900 and at today's gas prices, we'll get more.
When you buy gas, you use the card at the pump and get the CASH price.
Gas gift cards are available for:
Marathon, BP Gas, Exxon/Mobile, Shell, Speedway/Total, and Sunoco AND can be used outside of the State of Michigan.
The process works the same for the other gift cards listed.
Each year the St. David's Scrip program raises thousands of dollars (about $3000+ each year) for youth programs, outreach, and operating expenses. The more folks use the program, the more funds St. David's receives.
Volunteers staff the Scrip window each Sunday from 9:30 to 10am and again after the service.
The Scrip Associates are here to help out. We have a stock of scrip on hand, and if what you need is not available, we can order it for you. Gift cards are excellent gifts for graduations and any holiday.
Also, if you shop at Kroger’s or Hiller’s, stop by and talk to us about how St. David’s can benefit from your purchases there.
We will work with you to make shopping easier on you and benefit St. David’s at the same time.
