Gift Card Program
St. Francis Xavier Parish sponsors a gift card program where we buy cards from numerous national and local retailers at a discount and sell them at face value. In this way, parishioners (and others) can help raise thousands of dollars for our parish at no additional cost to them. All it takes is a little planning ahead.
Here’s how it works:
Our volunteer-run program orders a wide variety of cards that it keeps in stock and makes available for sale . Each retailer discounts its cards individually; some are as high as 15 percent off. We sell the cards at face value and keep the difference.
You can use the cards like cash at each establishment — including using them to buy other gift cards they sell. That way, you can take advantage of their promotional programs (such as Giant Eagle’s Fuel Perks) while also supporting your parish.
Families with children attending our day school may receive 50 percent of the profits they generate in an annually distributed sum that can be used to offset tuition. Simply circle that choice at the top of your order form.
A number of business owners purchase gasoline gift cards for their drivers. Doing some remodeling? Buy Home Depot, Lowe’s or Sears cards and use them to purchase your appliances or building supplies. Simplify your Christmas shopping with gift cards — we have a number of $5 to $20 cards available, which make great gifts for teachers, bus drivers and loved ones. Stock up every week on cards for your favorite groceries.
Many more retailers across the country participate in this program, and with a little notice we are happy to special-order cards you might want or need. For a complete list of those cards we can order, visit glscrip.com or scrippro.com.
