Donate to Holly Avenue at No Cost to You!!!
The Arcadia Unified School District (AUSD), the Arcadia Educational Foundation (AEF), and Holly Avenue Elementary School are asking for your help in these difficult times.
 
What?! How can I donate money without pain?
          Buy SCRIP and
          Register your grocery store cards.
 
What exactly is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a certificate issued by a participating store which can be used like cash. The schools make money because the participating stores donate a percentage to nonprofit organizations -like schools! The percentage of the donation varies, but it is typically between 2% -10% of the purchase.
 
Where can I buy SCRIP?
          Your child brings home regularly SCRIP flyers. However, if you need one, you can also go to Holly-Ave PTA’s website at: holly-avepta@ausd.net and print as many order forms as you need. Then simply send in your order with your child. Your order will be ready within a few days and can be picked up at the school office anytime from 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
          Sign up for the SCRIP club. Through an automatic funds transfer from your checking account, you can have SCRIP mailed to your home every month. You can designate multiple schools or groups to benefit from your participation. For more information about the SCRIP club, contact Debbie Riggio at arcadiascrip@sbcglobal.net.
 
For which stores can I purchase SCRIP?
Holly Avenue sells SCRIP for many grocery and specialty stores, restaurants, and even Arco gasoline. Complete listings are available in the school office and are sent home with your child regularly.
 
How do I register my grocery store card?
Go to escrip.com to register your Von's/Pavilion's or Super A card or go to www.Ralphs.com to register your Ralph's Rewards card. Make sure you designate Holly Avenue as the beneficiary and each time you swipe your club card at the market, a donation will be made to the school. For grocery stores without a rewards program, like Albertsons, Whole Foods, 99 Ranch Market, and Arcadia Supermarket, SCRIP is usually available for purchase.
 
Will buying SCRIP and registering my grocery store cards really make a difference?
If your family purchased $500 of grocery SCRIP per month, this would generate around $250 annually per family. If all 6,600 families enrolled at an Arcadia school bought SCRIP for this amount, then the money to our schools could increase by hundreds of thousands of dollars per year! At this time, total SCRIP profits are a mere $75,000. Sadly, fewer than 5% of our AUSD families purchase SCRIP on a regular basis at any of the AUSD schools.
 
Where does the money go?
SCRIP proceeds go directly to our school. Profits are spent on items that directly benefit students such as computers and teaching equipment in the classroom. It is also used to support many programs such as music, sports, and performing arts.
