Did you know that just by shopping at your regular stores you can earn money for TVA? Through the Scrip Program if you purchase gift cards to your favorite stores the school can earn a percentage back. For example, if you spend $25 a week at Fred Meyer and you use a gift card purchased through Scrip, the cost to you would only be $25 a week, but TVA would earn $1 for that week. Multiply that by 52 weeks and the school earns $52 for the year just from one family. If we could get 100 familes to buy their groceries using the Scrip gift cards that would be over $5,000 a year of additional funding for TVA.
In the past money earned from the Scrip Program had been used to buy air conditioner unites for classrooms and the cafeteria and an upgrade to the Staff Work room. Proceeds from the Scrip program will continue to go to help with facility upgrades.
