(SFSP) - Fundraising
Shop for St. Peter is our parish's “SCRIP” program which is a term that means “substitute money”.
When you purchase from SFSP, you’re purchasing gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash.
You can use SFSP cards for everyday expenses like food, clothing, gas and other essentials. With every SFSP purchase, you earn money for St. Peter's regional schools tuition subsidy program at no additional cost to you. To participate and use our express service, please download, print and fill out the Shop for Saint Peter Order Form and return it with a check payable to "Shop for Saint Peter" to the table in the Chapel gathering area before Saturday evening or Sunday Mass. We will have the order ready for you after Mass. Thank you for participating in this program.
Please Note: The Shop for Saint Peter Order Form is in PDF format and requires Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can download the latest version free by clicking here.
This is an important thing to remember. AT NO ADDITIONAL COST TO YOU and can even earn money for YOU (or a family member's) tuition. The vendor is the one who gives the parish a percentage of money. And you get to use the entire amount that you purchased. Nothing extra out of your pocket….the amount you buy at the SFSP counter is the amount you get to spend. Every penny of it.
Here are just some of the examples of SFSP cards you can buy:
- Grocery Stores: Dierberg’s.
- Gas cards: Mobile and Shell. You drive up to the pump, swipe your card, pump your gas and drive away. It doesn’t get much easier.
- Home Improvement: Home Depot and Lowe’s
- Department stores: Dillard’s, Macy’s, JC Penny, K-mart, Kohl’s, Wal-Mart,Walgreens and Sears. Specialty stores like: Bass Pro, Toys R Us, Best Buy, Sport Authority and Many Many More.
- Restaurants and Fast Food: Pickelman’s, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Red Robin, Bob Evans, Olive Garden, Tony’s on Main, TGI Friday’s and many, many more!
Here is an example:
If you ordered $150.00 of all these great stores, St. Peter would receive approximately $8.00 (different vendors pay different percentages). If 200 families purchased $150.00 through the Shop for St. Peter program every week they would generate $1,600 per week for St Peter.
Do your Christmas shopping through SFSP. What a great stocking stuffer. Think of all the times you are buying Christmas gifts or gift certificates from Macy’s, Dillard’s, Sears, Kmart, Toys R Us, Kohl’s, JC Penny and many, many other stores. Why not use the SFSP program help St. Peter schools at no cost to you.
SFSP is a regional school fundraiser. However, it definitely benefits the parish as a whole. Since the parish subsidizes the school, any fund generated through SFSP serves to lessen the amount of parish support required by the school. Imagine what we could accomplish if everyone here today used SFSP. There are so many other stores and services available. Get yourself an order form, by clicking on the link above, and look at all the options available to you. Now is the time to start with the SFSP program.
