Although monetary donations are always appreciated, the following are a number of other ways that you can incorporate helping St. Sava Orthodox School into your habits.

Scrip program

If you live in the Milwaukee area, you can purchase gift cards for hundreds of retailers through the school, and while the gift cards give you full face value, the school receives a percentage of the purchases. Please contact the school to arrange purchase.

Customer Loyalty programs

    • Target – If you have a Target store card (Red Card) or Target Visa, up to 1% of the total amount of purchases made at Target (and up to half a percent for Target Visa purchases made elsewhere) can be designated a school of your choice.

Details: https://www-secure.target.com/redcard/tcoe/home Target has also announced that this program will be ending as of May 14, 2016, so it is important to participate while it is still available.

    • Labels for Education: Started by Campbell’s soups, collect labels (now label coupons) on Campbell’s soups, and specially marked items such as Pace Salsa, Bic Pens – http://www.labelsforeducation.com/
    • Coca-Cola My Coke Rewards: http://www.mycokerewards.com/token/kula-donate.html My Coke Rewards is a program where one can collect Coca-Cola “My Coke Rewards” codes from caps and boxes. The points received from these can be used to get Coke gear and free stuff, but the points can also be donated to schools. To do this, register for an account at My Coke Rewards, enter in the codes as usual, and then click on the “donate” tab at the top of the screen. Once you do that, click on the “Learn More” link on the section for using Coke Rewards for schools. This should bring up another screen that lets you search for a school; entering “St. Sava Milwaukee” ought to bring up St. Sava, and from there, you can donate your points for cash rewards to the school.
