St. Paul’s Scrip Program – https://www.stpaulsbangor.com/scrip-program/
SCRIP refers to gift certificates or gift cards (great for holiday gift giving). St. Paul’s is able to purchase gift cards from hundreds of retailers nationwide at a discount, which you can buy at face value. The difference is our school’s profit. By purchasing these gift cards before you shop for your everyday items – like groceries, gas, restaurants – we raise money, without you having to spend a penny extra. Also available on the “Raise Right” mobile app are e-gift cards that can be used instantly via your mobile phone. Questions: Contact Janel Lochen at 608-386-4243. Deadline for December Scrip orders is December 10.
Luther High Music Dept. Fruit Sale: Today is the last day for Luther students taking orders in the church basement between services to raise funds for the Music Department.
