When we sell scrip (gift cards), a percentage of the face value goes in to the church’s Campership fund. That fund helps kids from our church go to church camp each summer. For instance, JoAnn Fabrics and TJMax/Homegoods both pay 7% on all scrip purchased.
And now, when you shop on Amazon, we can get a little for our scrip fund, too. In your Amazon account you have the option by logging onto smile.amazon.com to choose an organization to receive a percentage of your online purchases. At the top of the page, there is a Smile section where you can type in the name of your group and set it to the default organization. Type In Niles Discovery Church and set it as your default organization for us to receive additional funds for our camper program.
If you’re going to shop there anyway, why not use scrip?
Thank you everyone for your participation and helping make camp possible for the youth of our church. We raise over $2,000 in a typical year.
