And welcome back to ordering C.A.R.E. cards and earning rewards for tuition. As a reminder of how the C.A.R.E. program works here is an overview.
The C.A.R.E. program (Cards Are Rewards for Education) is a parishioner operated St. Columbkille Parish and School fundraiser. Gift cards are purchased by C.A.R.E. at a discount (between 2-20%) and resold at face value. C.A.R.E. retains the discount as profit and returns 100% of money earned to St. Columbkille by funding various school and parish needs.
For parish school families every dollar spent under $1,000 you earn a C.A.R.E. Rewards discount of 1% on school tuition or religious education fees. If you spend more than $1,000 you will earn 2%.
Gift cards are available for over 500 local and national vendors including restaurants, grocery, home, auto, clothing, specialty stores and entertainment including bowling, movie theaters, and music downloads.
C.A.R.E can be purchased 24 hours a day online; after each weekend Mass in the church foyer; or sent to the school with students during the school year.

We order our weekly stock on Sunday nights so they will arrive in time for orders to be filled on Friday for the weekly school orders and weekend masses.
For volunteer opportunities contact the C.A.R.E. committee at StCCareCards@gmail.com. We need sellers for weekend masses, pancake breakfasts, fish frys, and to sell at school for 1 hour on Fridays. Also if you are interested in volunteering with C.A.R.E. in other ways we have non-selling positions.
