What is Scrip?
Scrip is an ongoing fundraiser at Shepherd of the Hills. The Scrip program purchases prepaid gift cards from retailers at varying discounts of 2%-20%. This percentage is the profit earned that can be applied to parish expenses, school tuition, and religious education fees. At Shepherd of the Hills, 95% of your profit can be applied to the program of your choosing -- parish, school (3K-8), religious education, and SMSA High School. 5% of the profit is retained to cover the cost of the Scrip program.
Please note that in order to receive someone else's Scrip credit, you must be an active Scrip user yourself. An active Scrip user is defined as placing 1 Scrip order per month minimum. If they are not active Scrip users, profits will be directed to the parish general fund.
Placing a Scrip Order & Pick Up Availability
To place an order for Scrip, complete an order form and drop it in one of the collection boxes located in the school office or just outside the coffee house before the start of 10:30 am Mass on Sunday. Your completed order will typically be available for pick up the next day (Monday) with back ordered items ready later the same week.
You may pick up Scrip orders from either the Parish or School office.
Want more convenience for picking up your Scrip order?
Did you know that you can pick up your Scrip order immediately after the 8:15 and 10:30 Sunday Masses? A Scrip volunteer will be standing between the parish and gift shop doors distributing Scrip orders. Items that are in stock can be picked up at that time. Back ordered items will be ready for pick up Wednesday at the location you chose on the Scrip form (parish or school office).
**Please note that during the holiday season with the high volume of orders this option may not be available**
PrestoPay and ScripNow are also options for ordering Scrip. Please contact a Scrip Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an account for using these convenient online options.
