Other Support Opportunities
In addition to volunteering your time and providing direct financial support, there are many other easy ways in which you can support OLW. These programs let you shop and still support OLW School because rebates from your purchases are directed back to the school.
OLW’s Gift Card Program (ShopWithScrip) – This the biggest rebate program that benefits OLW School. SWS is a program whereby partnered vendors (300+) agree to sell gift cards to OLW at a discount. Families buy gift cards at full face value and OLW keeps the difference as profit, which is shared with the purchasing families in a 50/50 split. There is no minimum spending amount required in order to receive a rebate, and there is no limit in the amount of rebate received. Families place their orders online at https://www.shopwithscrip.com/ with payment directly debited from their bank account or via check sent in to the school office. For details on the program or instructions on how to sign up please contact our SWS Coordinator Ashley Romanacce, at email@example.com and Ann Lang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other ways that you can shop as you normally do and still support OLW School include:
AmazonSmile – Amazon.com donates 0.5% of all eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice, including OLW. Just sign up at https://smile.amazon.com/ and search for “Our Lady of the Wayside.”
General Mills Big G Box Tops for Education Program – clip Box Tops from General Mills products and OLW receives payments at a rate of 10 cents each. Send in your clips with your student or drop them off in the school office.
Supper Clubs – Additionally, throughout the year, OLW participates in Supper Club fundraisers, where a local restaurant donates to OLW a portion of the sales on a certain day during a certain time period. Check the website homepage, the parish Bulletin and the school Facebook page periodically to see if one your favorite restaurants are supporting our school.
