Troop 78 has the answer to your shopping needs!
Ordering gift cards is easy.
Willistown Troop 78/Scout Gift Card Fundraiser (Scrips)
Did you know that you can purchase gift cards for family, friends, teachers and service providers through Troop 78?? There are hundreds of stores on the list. Consider purchasing gift cards for monthly expenses such as groceries, gas, household items, clothing, and restaurants. Additionally, think about spring/summer gifting occasions and summer vacations. Every gift card purchased through Raise Right (formerly Scrips) sends a rebate back to Troop 78. Half is deposited into your troop "Scout Account" (used for summer camp, Disney, high adventure/weekend trips etc) and half is used by the troop for operating expenses such as the Troop Bus. Rebates range from 1%-12%, For the next few weeks there are smaller gift cards–$5/$10 range as well as lots of special bonuses.
You can fill out a paper order form and return to Steve or Sherri Wark or you can input your order electronically and pay by check made out to Friends of Troop 78 or through Paypal or Venmo (ask Sherri for details on those). For some stores, e-cards are available. Reloadable gift cards are also available for some stores. Please visit raiseright.com/shop for a full listing of gift card retailers available. A few popular retailers include Apple, Home Depot, Instacart and Starbucks!
NEW!! You can use the RaiseRight APP! Please ask Sherri for the enrollment code. You can input your order through the app and still pay by cash/check/Venmo, or you can connect a bank account (small transaction fee applied) or pay by credit card (2.6% fee added to your order at checkout). If you would like to order your gift cards online but not with the app, please contact Sherri Wark at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will send you an email link to our Troop account through Raise Right. It is an easy process. You can also order instant gift cards through the app. I order these when we go out to certain restaurants – while at the table!
Checks should be made out to Friends of Troop 78. Please complete the form and return it with full payment. Bring the form and the checks to the cabin on or before the Troop meeting on May 19th. Please contact us directly with any orders after that date. Cards will be distributed during Troop Field Days (June 1 and 4th). You can also pick up at an alternate time.
Look at your family’s upcoming expenses for groceries, gas, dining out and household expenses. Can you pre-purchase any of these expenses? Check out some of these examples below – can you purchase a gift card for any of these monthly/semi-monthly needs? Keep a few in your purse or wallet. Also ask your friends! I post on my personal social media accounts and get lots of requests from friends – they are buying them anyway!
Giant $100 $4 rebate Wawa $100 $1 rebate
Target $100 $2.50 rebate Old Navy $100 $14 rebate
Dick’s Sporting $100 $8 rebate Outback Steakhouse $100 $13 rebate
As you can see, some categories offer more of a rebate than others. A retail store offers a larger rebate than Wawa. When deciding on gift cards, you would choose something that your family would use, of course, but consider which ones have a higher rebate. There are hundreds of stores to choose from. There are electronic options for some stores as well. We highly encourage participation in this Troop Fundraiser.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
