We are appealing to the congregation of St. John’s for their continued support during the upcoming Christmas Season of the Funscrip Program. For those who are not familiar with the program to, we operate a fundraising program every week in which we sell gift cards to various stores, businesses, and much more. Grocery gift cards, gas gift cards, restaurants, clothing stores, toy stores, beauty stores, and countless others.
How the program works is very simple: you buy gift cards at their normal price, and we get a percentage of that sale. For example, say you want to buy $25 worth of Grocery gift cards. You spend $25, and you get a $25 card. No extra fees or taxes or extra expense! It doesn’t cost you a single cent extra to buy gift cards through this program, and it gives our church a return of at least 3% per card, sometimes up to 5% and more!
Gift cards are a wonderful gift for the Christmas season for friends, family, or even a little something for yourself. There are many retailers to order from, some of which include, but aren’t limited to:
- Toys R’ Us
- Home Sense
- Pier 1 Imports
- Bath and Body Works
- Tim Hortons
- President’s Choice Grocery Stores (Independent/Loblaws etc.)
- Banana Republic
- American Eagle
- La Senza
- and much more!
A full list of available retailers is available after service. Due to the unavailability to send orders every week, we ask that you order your gift cards well in advance to ensure delivery well before Christmas. Orders sent in on any Tuesday will be delivered to us by Friday. So far, we have never had any back orders with the Fundscrip program.
Please consider stopping at our table downstairs after church to buy cards to retailers in Cornwall or to order cards to retailers found outside Cornwall. It is such an easy way to raise fund to be put towards any of our current debts and projects!
Best part is: there is no additional cost to you!
We thank you so much for any consideration you may make towards helping us meet a worthwhile goal!
