SJR participates in the SCRIP gift card program, in which families can order gift cards through the school. The family receives the full face value and the school receives a percentage. The next order is due November 3; the order form is below.
Also consider buying gift cards to support the SJR Gift Card Drive, which begins Monday, Nov 27th and ends Friday, Dec 15th. Simply indicate on the order form which cards you are donating, and SJR will take care of the rest. We suggest cards from Target or Walmart. The Drive benefits those families enrolled with the Office of Concern at St. Cecilia's Parish in Englewood. The move away from purchasing toys, clothes and other gifts is two-fold. 1) Much of the time, what is bought is not what kids want and not kept by those kids. 2) Providing gift cards to specific stores with a variety of toy and clothing options empowers parents to buy the items for their children, which the parents know their children want, will play with and will wear.
