How to Support Reidy Creek PTA While You Shop

Right now is the busiest shopping season of the year; it’s also a time where people are thinking about giving. Reidy Creek PTA would like to share two EASY options for you to support our organization just by making your normal purchases! Here’s how you can help:

  • Sign up on eScrip. This site donates money to PTA every time you use the cards you register on the site. Here’s how to do it:
    1. Go to eScrip.com
    2. Select “Sign Up
    3. Enter your personal information
    4. Select your organization. Please select “Reidy Creek Elementary School – PTA.” (You have the options to select up two more organizations–for a total of three–if you want to support other schools/organizations).
    5. Register the credit/debit cards you use most often, then submit!
    6. Then, when you pay using these cards at any of the thousands of participating stores, a portion of your purchase will go back to Reidy Creek PTA!

 

  • Shop using our Amazon Smile link. For those of you who shop on Amazon, there is a very simple way to donate a portion of your purchase through Amazon Smile.
    • Just shop on Amazon.com using this link: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/20-3472934
    • For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.

 

Reidy Creek PTA thanks you for supporting our organization and helping us give back to our children and their school. Happy shopping!

Join us this Friday (December 8) at 6pm. Be sure to arrive early enough to get parking and good seats on the lawn.
