Description
The Scrip Program (along with Greenbacks) is one of the easiest ways to earn money for Angell.

Scrip allows you to pre-purchase gift cards for stores and restaurants through the Great Lakes Scrip Center (GLSC) and a portion of the proceeds (2% to 15% depending on the retailer) go to the PTO! The list of participating retailers is extensive and searchable here. As examples:
  • Whole Foods – 3%
  •  L.L. Bean and Land's End – 16% each
  • The Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic – 14% each
  • Barnes and Nobles – 9%
  • REI – 8%
  • CVS, Walgreens – 6%

So, with a $100 Whole Foods gift card, 3% or $3 goes to Angell PTO. If each family did it just one time in a year we would make $900!.  It's also great for budgeting. Pick a place where you routinely shop (e.g., Whole Foods, Walgreens, Starbucks) or one you use for holiday gifts (e.g., Amazon, Harry and David, Macy's) and then use your cards to be sure you spend the targeted amount! Or give gift cards for Christmas and your shopping will be all done!

  • A few retailers are beginning to offer 'reloadable' cards, including Whole Foods.  Buy the first gift card and, when you are ready to put more money on it, you just tell SCRIP to reload it. You can pay the same way you did when you ordered the gift cards (via check or PrestoPay). 
Step 3 - Submit your order to Angell School
