Fundraising is an integral part of Star of the Sea’s financial development each year. The monies raised come from a number of different channels, including our Spring parish festival, candy and holiday greens sales, our spring wine gala and auction, and the annual parent pledge drive, just to name a few. You can also contribute money to Star of the Sea simply by shopping at local stores and websites you’re already using, like Amazon.com
Your on-line shopping at Amazon.com will also help Star’s fund raising effort if you click the Amazon link. Star earns a percentage of each order in your shopping session. Remember to come to this page and click the button before shopping on Amazon. Thanks.
Another way of contributing money to the school is simply to shop at local stores and web sites that you may already be visiting. All Star families are required to enroll in the eScrip program. To use this program, register your credit, debit, and grocery club cards with the program. Then, use those cards to buy goods and services from participating eScrip merchants, both online and local. Although the percentage of your purchase that goes to the school may vary from merchant to merchant, the average contribution for eScrip is approximately 3 percent of your total purchases. Please go to www.escrip.com for more information, to sign up, or to check your contribution totals thus far.
When shopping for sports apparel, equipment, supplies, etc., think of Sports Basement! Just mention Star of the Sea at any Sports Basement store and obtain a discount toward your purchase. A portion will also benefit the Star of the Sea sports program!
