There are many opportunities for Parishioners to help raise funds for St. Francis of Assisi Parish while living their everyday lives. There is our Scrip program, Retail Store programs, Amazon Smile for online shoppers, and the Product Labels program. Learn more below.
Shopping with a Mission……………….
Did you know that you could generate hundreds of funds for St. Francis of Assisi Church and School without any additional cost to you? By purchasing gift cards for your favorite restaurants, stores, entertainment and travel vendors, they give a percentage of sales back to St. Francis to further our mission and ministry. Thanks for shopping with SCRIP!
Ordering SCRIP is easy:

We collect Box Tops and Tyson A+ labels. Look for qualifying labels on eligible General Mills items and simply cut out the label and return it to St. Francis of Assisi School. When submitted to the companies, they send St. Francis money to use to purchase classroom equipment, school supplies and educational materials.
