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 - Changes Effective: January 9, 2022
All orders to be processed MUST be received before the start of 8:15 am Mass on Sundays.
Online Scrip orders may be placed anytime during the week with the use of your bank account or credit card only. Reloads and eGift Cards are also available for those who order online. Scrip users who order online via the RaiseRight app have the option of having Scrip cards mailed directly to their home. This is a great option for those who cannot make it to drop off or pick up.
If you are planning to place a paper Scrip order, here are a few options for you and they are as follows:
- Place your Scrip order in the Scrip box outside the coffee house or in the school office (Please note that this may change due to Covid-19). The parish office is open from 6:30 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Thursday. It is closed on Fridays. The School is open Monday through Friday during the school year.
- You may bring it to the coordinator's home during the week. Please contact Nancy Loehr via email at [email protected] if you choose this option.
If you would like information on how to place your Scrip order online instead of using paper order forms, please contact Nancy Loehr.
Scrip orders can be picked up immediately after 8:15 am Mass on Sundays between the gift shop and parish office doors. If not picked up at that time they will be directed to the parish office. The parish office is open Monday through Thursday from 6:30 am to 3:00 pm. The parish office is closed on Fridays. Scrip is not available for pick up after the 10:30 am Mass.
If you have a back-ordered item, it will be available for pick up at the parish office. Backorders are usually ready for pick up on Wednesdays.
