For a number of months now, we have been raising money to fund a wheelchair lift for our building. Currently if a person in a wheelchair comes to our facility and wants to go either up to the sanctuary, or down to the fellowship hall, they must go outside and around the building to do so.
As part of the effort to raise the estimated $52,000 to instal the lift, we are using a program that allows us to buy gift cards at a discounted rate and sell them at face value. This allows the church to have the difference, and allows us to raise money without selling, or buying things people don’t need. You simply use the cards on things you would normally buy, and the church makes money.
If you are interested in signing up, please see the instructions below:
INSTRUCTIONS FOR REGISTERING FOR OUR “SHOP WITH SCRIP” FUNDRAISER
1. Go online to www.shopwithscrip.com Select REGISTER
2. On the next screen, on the left-hand side, scroll down and click on JOIN A SCRIP PROGRAM
3. The next screen says ENROLL. In the box labeled ENROLLMENT CODE,

Then, you may begin shopping. Add items to your cart; when finished, click on CHECKOUT.
We’d like for everyone to use PRESTO PAY to make their payments. Click on the PRESTO PAY button to sign up on their site. This is a secure payment site similar to PAYPAL, but it used only for ShopWithScrip.
If you choose not to use PRESTO PAY, click on the CHECK option. Then, write a check for the total amount shown on your order made out to Emmaus Church ; fill out an order form (provided to you at church) that will include the check number, for the items you wish to order. Then, the church will assemble all the orders once a week, and mail them to SHOP WITH SCRIP. The orders will be filled and ovenighted back to the church, and they can be picked up the following Sunday.
The first order will take about a week and a half to process. After that, things will process faster, particularly if you use the PRESTO PAY option.
When you choose items, the amount rebated to the church will show on your screen.
If you have any questions, call or email George Holt: 804-338-8243, firstname.lastname@example.org
