Why Buy SCRIP?

SCRIP is a fund-raising program that enables you to support St. Mary’s  through the purchase of cards from stores and other local and national vendors. A percentage of sales – anywhere from 2 to 50 percent  – comes back to the parish.

For example, if you order a Tops scrip card with a value of $100, 5 percent of the proceeds – or $5 – comes back to the parish. The card then acts like a debit card, with the full value of $100 coming back to you. You can use it towards groceries, gas, prescriptions, and whatever purchases you make at Tops.

You also can purchase scrip to be used as gift cards.

St. Mary’s boasts the largest scrip program in the Buffalo Diocese.

SCRIP may be purchased:

  • After Masses. Look for SCRIP sellers as you leave Church via the main entrance/exit.

  • At the Rectory on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

  • At the St. Mary’s Elementary School office – during August, Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.

Locked boxes are available at Church and outside the SCRIP office at St. Mary’s Elementary, so orders also may be dropped off there.

Completed SCRIP orders may be dropped off at any time in the locked boxes located outside the SME SCRIP office and in the Church entrance foyer.

You can order SCRIP and track your rebates online, as well as take advantage of the following benefits:
• Check your account activity.
• Create a personalized favorites list.
• Reload scrip cards that you already own.
