New School Year at St. Sava School in Milwaukee

This Thursday, September 1, 2016, marks the first day of the 2016-2017 school year for St. Sava School in Milwaukee. St. Sava is the only Orthodox Christian school in the state of Wisconsin, and runs from preschool to 8th grade. As they begin this school year, please keep them in your prayers.

If you would like to help them monetarily, the following are a few ways to do so:

Direct donations – Checks can be made payable to the school and can be sent directly there. Their address is 3201 S 51st St Milwaukee, WI 53219

Scrip program – Purchase gift cards for shopping, gifts, etc. You pay no extra, and the school receives a percentage of the amount of your purchase. Cards may be purchased at the school. Please call 414-546-9578 for more information.

Collections – St. Sava collects both General Mills’ Box Tops for Education and Campbells’ Labels for Education program. Points can be sent to the school or brought to St. Nicholas Church in Kenosha for collection.

Loyalty/Shopping – Office Depot (& Office Max) gives back 5% on qualifying items to schools through their Give Back to Schools Program. St. Sava’s number code is 70209225 . Red Robin restaurants have a program called Burgers for Better Schools Program, where when someone who has signed up for their “Red Robin Royalty” loyalty card (which is free) can designate a school to receive an amount of 1% of purchases made using that card to a school.

My Coke Rewards – My Coke Rewards codes can be entered in to their website and converted to a donation to a school through https://donate.mycokerewards.com/causes/featured.
