Gift Certificate Program
The St. Patrick Parish Gift Certificate Program is the school’s primary fundraising activity. The very practical program works like this: families purchase gift certificates or in many cases, gift cards – at face value – for dozens of retail stores, including gas stations, grocery stores, and entertainment businesses. Families are required to purchase gift cards or opt out by paying a one-time amount of $125. At the beginning of every school year, an information letter will come home with your child explaining this program in detail.
Many, many popular retailers you probably shop with regularly participate in the gift certificate program, including Giant Eagle and Acme, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Wendy’s, Amazon.com, Macy’s, and many more.
Gift certificates can be purchased at the Blue House (hours will be announced), and after each weekend mass at St. Patrick Church. Certificates can also be pre-ordered by “backpack express,” meaning you simply complete the order form and send it with your child. Orders are filled and sent back home with your child the next day or depending on your order by the end of that week.
