SCRIP (Selling Cards Results in Profit) Gift Card Fundraiser

As a fundraiser, we offer gift cards for sale to the community. We buy them in quantity at a discount, and sell them at face value. The difference is the amount we raise for the general fund. In recent years, we have raised between $2,000 and $2,500 per year. This is an easy way to support Temple Israel as we all buy food and gas. These gift cards also make great gifts. Below is a list of the merchants whose gift cards we offer for sale.

  • Big Y Supermarkets
  • Food City
  • Foster's Supermarket
  • Franklin Community Co-op (Green Fields Market & McCusker's Market)
  • Stop & Shop Supermarkets
  • Sunoco Gas Stations
