Remke 4% Caring Neighbors Program
The Remke Caring Neighbors Program provides a great way for St. Augustine to simply and quickly raise money to support our efforts! The program relies on the members merely loading a Remke gift card with value which they in turn spend in Remke stores. Our organization will earn 4% of the values loaded.
We will have these cards available in the School office; you must use the gift cards that we have, as they are the only ones in Remke’s system that are associated with our account. The Remke gift cards can be requested by sending a note to the school office or at any HSO meeting. They have no value on them, so there is no need to send any money with your request. When you do your shopping, simply load the money onto the card prior to having the cashier begin scanning your purchase. Then you will use that gift card to pay for your purchase. If you have any family members who shop at Remke, encourage them to use one of our gift cards too, the more we share this program, the bigger the profits for the school. This is a good way to budget for your grocery needs by putting a certain amount on the card each week or at each pay period.
Remke will send a check to St. Augustine for 4% of total loaded value of all cards linked to our program each quarter.
Kellogg’s Reward Program
Another simple program, where you are already purchasing the product. Look on your Kellogg’s products for the Kellogg’s Family Reward. There will be a code inside the package. Cut the code out and send it to school.
