Grocery, Gift and Scrip Card Program
Redeemer participates locally with Food Lion, Kroger Plus Card, Martin's, Wal-Mart and Kohl’s in a fund raising program for our Youth Ministry Program. These stores allow us to purchase gift cards at a reduced rate, which we in turn sell to our parishioners for their face value.
Please see the article below regarding the recent change with the Kroger Card Promotion.
We also participate with Great Lake Scrip in purchasing gift cards and certificates from many of our local stores and merchants such as, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Regal, Starbucks, Macy’s, Old Navy, Sheetz, Panera, Wawa, Home Depot, Lowe’s, etc. Click here to get a complete list of all the merchants and the denominations available. Click here for an order form.
It doesn’t cost you any more than you are already spending at these stores and it allows us to raise funds that we use to help develop the leadership among our youth. We use the funds raised to offset the cost of sending our youth to national and diocesan leadership conferences, workcamp, etc.
The gift cards from Food Lion, Wal-Mart, Kohl’s and many scrip may be purchased during the week from the parish office or every weekend after liturgy. A group of volunteers are stationed at a table in Genesis Hall Commons for your convenience in obtaining these cards. You can pre-order these gift cards by filling out one of the yellow envelopes included in your envelope mailing, slipping it through the mail slot in the church office door prior to liturgy, and picking up your gift cards right after liturgy.
The Great Lake Scrip cards may need to be pre-ordered. If so, our turn around time for the scrip cards is usually one week. If you order them on Sunday, they will be available for you to pick up after liturgy the following weekend.
