Scrip is an excellent way to earn money for summer trips simply be shopping like you normally do, but with Scrip!
Here is a link to the Scrip order form. You can also pick up blank order forms in the vestibule inside the front doors of Bethel.
Drop off your check and completed order forms in the locked mailbox to the right as you enter the parking lot from North Avenue.
Need to pick up cards? Lori or Krista will be at church on Wednesdays, November 11-December 16, 6-7:30 p.m. and on Thursdays, December 3-17, 3:30-4:30 p.m.
What is Scrip?
Scrip is a great way to grow your family's trip account for any of the Bethel summer trips. Bethel has a tradition of encouraging our youth in grades eight through twelve to participate in summer trips as a means of learning to reach out to others, create relationships with other Bethelites, experience faith growth, and encounter new adventures.
As a fundraiser, the purpose behind Scrip is to grow your trip account using dollars that you are spending anyway. This means that dollars you are spending for groceries, gas, prescriptions, birthday presents, fast food, or going out to eat can increase your trip account without spending extra money. Each card or certificate carries the face value of the purchased amount, but the pledged percent from the retailer then goes into your trip account. The cards carry any unused balance from one purchase to another just like any other gift card.
What if I don't have a child going on a trip?
You're still welcome to purchase Scrip cards and either designate a Bethel youth who is going on a summer trip, or designate that the funds should go to the scholarship fund.
How soon will my cards arrive?
Depending on the number of orders placed, we may not order cards every week; we do definitely order every other week. You may need to plan a little bit ahead for back-to-school shopping or birthdays so that we will have the cards when you need them. Orders brought in from family and friends will be credited to your account.
We have a certain number of cards in stock to take with you on a first-come basis including: Caribou, Subway, Dairy Queen, Applebee’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, ITunes, Walgreen’s, Holiday $25/100, Chipotle, Dominos, Cub $25/100, Kohl’s $25/100, Kwik Trip $20/25/50/100, Red Lobster/Olive Garden, Menard’s $24/100, Panera Bread, Papa Murphy’s, Pizza Hut, Dick’s Sporting Goods $100, Mill’s Fleet Farm $100, SuperAmerica $100, and Target $25/100.
