St. Margaret Mary MarketDay and Scrip
Market Day offers a wide variety of frozen and pre-packaged foods, and 100% of the profit from food purchased will be applied to pay tuition. Order forms can be obtained at St. Gabes and St. Margaret Mary elementary schools or by visiting the company's website. Delivery occurs monthly at St. Gabes and St. Margaret Mary and you need not have children in the school to use a particular pick-up location.
Another year round tuition fundraising program is available to all TCCES families, the TCCES Scrip program. Scrip is a nationwide program that enables organizations to raise money by purchasing gift cards at a reduced rate, selling them to their supporters and then keeping the difference as profit. TCCES passes the benefits of scrip on to participating families by applying a percentage of the profit (varies by retailer and TCCES location) to a family's tuition bill. Literally hundreds of nationwide and local retailers, hotels, restaurants and businesses participate in the Scrip program. By getting into the habit of using scrip to purchase everyday items such as groceries, gas and fast food, TCCES families can noticeably reduce their tuition bill without increasing their usual spending.
Scrip order forms are available on our website and at every TCCES school and parish office. Some schools and parishes also have designated times when more commonly used gift cards are available for immediate purchase. Less frequently used cards must be ordered. Orders are placed on Thursday mornings, and most cards are then available the following Thursday.
Parish and community members who wish to purchase Scrip may have their proceeds applied to a particular family's tuition bill, or may designate a TCCES tuition assistance fund.
