SCRIP PROGRAM

What is Scrip? Scrip is fundraising while you shop. Scrip turns everyday shopping into cash for CTK when retail gift cards are used to pay instead of the usual credit/debit card or other money. Everyday purchases include gas, groceries, clothing, restaurants and entertainment. Scrip may be purchased after each mass at the Scrip table, in the parish office when it is open, and anytime online at ShopWIthScrip. Many retailer cards are in stock. Hundreds of others may be ordered with a paper order form or online. Think Scrip for special celebrations too, as gift cards make great gifts. Volunteers selling Scrip after masses are scheduled no more than once a month.
