Scrip is retail fundraising. Funds are earned for the church just by your normal shopping without costing you a penny extra! The more members and friends of The Met use Scrip Gift Cards the more we earn to support our ministries. Even using Scrip Gift Cards in small amounts makes a big difference as they add up.
To learn how you can participate in this fundraising activity or contact Fred Ihler. During our sheltering-in-place, the Bookstore is closed, but Fred is glad to provide or order Scrip for you.
Scrip is simply gift cards, available for hundreds of retailers at which you shop for dining, groceries, home improvement, gas, and much more. A percentage of each gift card purchase comes back to the church. Then, use the gift card as you normally would at its full value. It's that simple! It's a win, win.
With eScrip you register your credit and debit cards, designate the church, and a portion of yot participating vendors comes to the church. Once set up, the process is automatic.
We also earn rebates from Ralphs and Food4Less that are paid to MCC San Diego on a quarterly basis. Just sign-up, use your Ralphs or Food4Less cards, and automatically a portion of your purchases come to the church quarterly.
Scrip is used on a regular basis to lend support to Hospitality, our LGBT Pride outreach, Pastors Benevolence Fund, Feed My Sheep and other church ministries. Please get in the Scrip/Gift Card habit and assist us in supporting the ministries of MCC San Diego.
