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 FEBRUARY 2021
Scrip will be process as instructed below until further notice:
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.

If you are planning to place a paper Scrip order, here are a few options for you and they are as follows:

- You may bring it to my 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.
