Plan ahead and buy scrip cards!
 
We would like to take this opportunity to share with you some information about the CPC Scrip program.  You have probably heard of it but may not know just what it is. SCRIP is a fundraising program for our church that works while you shop.
 
SCRIP is simply a word that means “substitute money” in other words, scrip is gift cards from national and local retailers.  They’re the same gift cards that you buy at the store.  Many popular retailers participate in our SCRIP program.
 
You are probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money.  It is simple SCRIP participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to our organization at a discount.  Member families like yours buy the cards for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our church keeps the difference as revenue.  And SCRIP is exciting, because everybody wins:
        The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business
        You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling
        Our church gets a regular source of additional revenue
 
The beauty of SCRIP is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work.  You earn money for our church without spending a single additional penny.  Just spend your regular shopping dollars with SCRIP at the stores that participate in the SCRIP program!  And SCRIP can be used for just about any household purchases including food, clothing, travel, gasoline and even dining out.
 
SCRIP can be purchased before and after worship services.  We have many cards on hand that you may purchase immediately. In addition, other cards can be ordered and will be available the following Sunday.
