Imagine donating every time you go grocery shopping --or any type of shopping -- without increasing your costs. Project H.O.P.E. (Help Our Parish Economically) helps the parish, and you, if you have children at St. Mary's School. The school earns extra money every time a gift card is sold. We buy gift cards at a discount and sell them at face value. We make anywhere from 1.5% to 20% from different vendors. How does this help you? At the end of every accounting year (at St. Mary's, that's the end of June), all Project H.O.P.E. sales are tallied up. School families that sell less than $1,000 worth of scrip a year receive no rebate. School families that purchase over $1,000 of gift cards receive 75% of the total rebate earned from the vendor towards next year's tuition. Buying Project H.O.P.E. gift cards can make a real difference in tuition – last year St. Mary’s families received over $10,000 in tuition rebates!! Participation does pay!
Recently, one family received over $1,000 in tuition rebates.
What would that do for your budget?
We have gift cards for grocery stores, restaurants, and gas stations and can get cards for just about anything. Click below for St. Mary's Project H.O.P.E. Order Form to see what vendors are on our order form. If you would like to find another vendor go to www.glscrip.com we do take special orders. You can purchase gift cards after every Mass (except 12:30 Sunday), Religious Education, and at St. Mary's School. What a great way to "donate" to the Parish and earn tuition rebates. Best of all, it costs you nothing extra!!!!! Thank you for supporting Project H.O.P.E. For more details on Project H.O.P.E., and how to volunteer to help, please click here. What is Project H.O.P.E.?

There are several ways you can support St. Mary's School. One of the easiest, and no cost to you, is to collect Box Tops and Labels for Education from products you would already buy. You can also collect Coke rewards from Coke products. Cut out the labels, or keep the lids and bring them to school with a student or drop them off in the containers at the front and back of the church. Coupons really make a difference!
In January 2014 St. Mary's received a check for $2,119.20 for Box Tops that were collected.
For the 2015-2016 school year St. Mary's received a total of $3,120.30 from Box Tops.
