It is REALLY easy to help PCY earn money while you shop, and it costs you nothing to participate, which is why we call it "Passive Fundraising." Please take the time to register with these retailers.
PCY receives a percentage of your purchases every time you shop at Ralphs and swipe your Rewards card or use your alternate ID. You must register your card and designate PCY to receive the donations. Registration begins on September 1st, and you must re-register EVERY year.
How to register or re-register your Ralphs card:
When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to PCY. Search and add our organization to your account: Paradise Canyon Elementary PTA.
Register your grocery cards, gas cards, and/or debit/credit cards with eScrip, and a percentage of your purchases is donated to PCY by participating merchants. To register PCY as your educational beneficiary, log on to www.escrip.com, register yourself and any/all specific credit cards you use to make purchases, and designate "Paradise Canyon Elementary School" (ID No. 137607553) as your educational beneficiary. Every time you use the registered cards, we benefit from your purchases!
You have no doubt seen this logo on many of the products you purchase. PLEASE, cut them out! Better yet, ask your children to do the job. PCY earns 10 cents for each Box Top we return, which can add up to a lot of money when you think about 700 students. During the school year, we run competitions and throw parties for the class who collects the most Box Tops. Please put your Box Tops in an envelope with your name on it, and bring it to the front office. For more information on participating products, visit Box Tops.
Office Depot has a "5% Back to Schools Program," which helps PCY earn free school/office supplies! When you shop at Office Depot, either in the store, online, or on the phone, be sure to give them PCY's school ID number: 70009171
