EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SCRIP
Here is an exciting way to help the team. It becomes particularly helpful this time of year if you are planning to buy gift cards Any member of our swim family can use it, and from the convenience of their own workplace or home, any time, day or night. We encourage everyone to think of Scrip first. It’s a good habit to develop.
In Jrs and Srs the swimmers travel as a team, accompanied by chaperones and coaches. The Jr/Sr group fundraise to reduce their cost. They do this all year long for MIT, Long Course Y Nationals, and Short Course Y Nationals. As was mentioned in the last Seadog newsletter, the Jr/Sr dues program has gone away. We will still offer fundraisers to help defray the cost of our travel trips.
The Scrip program is one of those ways. For those not familiar with the program, it allows you to buy gift cards from hundreds of different stores. Each store gives a percentage back to the organization, ranging from 2%-20% . There will be no individual fundraising; it will go to all who attend the trips.
As the coordinator, Jane Barlok will submit any orders in the queue every Monday night, since we will not pay for shipping due to PrestoPay.
