Thanks for taking the time to learn more about how you can help the Dicken PTO make the school year a fun and educational experience for all of our children.
We can’t do it without you!
The Dicken PTO has several fundraisers through out the year. Some of these cost you nothing! The Grocery Scrip/EGGS and Great Lakes Scrip programs are two ways to help Dicken without spending any extra money. Boxtops may be on the products you normally buy, please look at the list below and start collecting!
What is Grocery Scrip/EGGS? EGGS (Everybody Goes Grocery Shopping) cards are like gift cards that you use at the grocery store. These cards set aside a percentage of your total grocery bill for Dicken. It is unbelievably easy, and you aren’t spending any extra money.
Ok, let’s do some math: If 150 of our Dicken families spent an average of $100 per week on groceries, and 5% of that comes back to Dicken, how much money would Dicken get?
150 Families x $100 spent per week on groceries = $15,000 x 5% = $750 per week x 36 weeks in the school year = $27,000 back to your kids! That’s roughly equivalent to the PTO’s annual budget. (Imagine if you continued to use your EGGS cards throughout the summer, too!)
5% can really make a difference!
You don’t have to spend any extra money to help Dicken. Just buy your groceries and use your SCRIP card, and 5% will come back to Dicken. It is really that easy!
