Children's Camp Scrip Program Information Page
Scrip is store gift certificates that can be spent the same as cash with that particular merchant.
Niles Discovery Church has its Scrip Program to support the children and youth of the church with scholarships to attend church camp. For the 2011 camping season, the program helped 10 children attend camp, providing $2,000.
Each time you use scrip, a percentage of the face value goes to the program. The percentage varies depending on the merchant and can range between 2% and 20% (for some restaurants).
Scrip works just like a debit card, except it's only good with the merchant/company that issued it.
Safeway is the largest company to use escrip.com's service. It's so easy now that registered individuals only need to use their Safeway Rewards Card, and pay in any manner, and Niles Discovery Church will be credited for the percentage of the purchase.
Other participating companies include Chevron, Eddie Bauer, Spiegel, Sharper Image, Round Table Pizza, and American Airlines. Check escrip.com's website often for new additions to their list.
Remember to use your Safeway Club Card that you have registered with E-scrip, and/or your Albertson's Community Partners card when grocery shopping. Even the little shopping trips help the kids.
