Support Our School
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 CARES 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.
