Gift Card Program
This is a “dollar for dollar” school/parish fundraiser. The school/parish purchases gift cards from local businesses at a discount. The school/parish then sells the gift cards to the families in the St. Francis Xavier community at face value. For example, the school/parish buys a $100 gift card from Speedway for $96 and sells the card for $100; the card can then be spent like cash. The school/parish makes $4. There are many merchants from which to choose. People are needed to participate in the program by purchasing the cards. Gift cards are available after weekend Masses and at the parish office (except on Mondays).
Ministers needed to: sell gift cards after Mass
Time required: about 20 minutes after Mass
