Coordinator: Sarah H.
Pick-up: Friday
Order: Monday by 8pm.  
Kwik Trip's standard rebate is now 4%. However, we will receive an additional 10% rebate on qualifying in-store purchases made with a gift card purchased from Great Lakes Scrip Center.  BUT: The additional rebate amount we receive will not be tracked in ShopWithScrip family rebate and order reports. That means that the additional 10% will go to the scrip program, not a specific family or a family's designated fund. We must earn a minimum of $10 per quarter to receive the additional funds.
HOWEVER: We are able to order directly through Kwik Trip. The advantages are:
— the initial rebate earned would be 5%, not 4%
— potentially, the additional 10% could go to the specific family
The disadvantages are:
—  additional ordering and tracking work for coordinators
— cost of shipping, $9.60/order 
At this time, we do NOT plan to take this step, but we would like to hear from YOU if you have any thoughts. faithscrip@gmail.com THANK YOU for taking the time to read this. 🙂

Across the Border Supper: The supper is scheduled for Jan. 30. The sign-up sheet will be at school next week and then at church for the following two Sundays.
