SMA Meeting: Join us for our next meeting on Wednesday, November 20, at 8:00 A.M. in the Parish Center.
FREE MONEY: Safeway E-scrip is changing the way we earn money.  The good news is that we can earn an unlimited amount of money from our supporters shopping at Safeway. The bad news?  We will only earn money when you pay for your groceries with one of the following forms of payment: Debit Card, Check, Cash, SmartCheck, Safeway Gift Card, WIC, SNAP.  So, if you use your credit card when shopping at Safeway, our school will no longer earn any money from that transaction. Maybe consider buying a Safeway gift card and use that when you shop.  Questions?  E-mail Dina Corrado

Free Money – Safeway

escripShop at Safeway?  Don’t forget to start collecting those receipts!  Beginning today, Safeway will be printing special codes at the bottom of the receipt that look like this.  If you have already already registered and designated St. Michael’s as your recipient, the message will say “thank you for your continued support.”  However, if you see that code, make sure to drop it in the St. Michael’s box located in the supermarket.  If there isn’t a box at your location, please bring it to school and deposit it in the box by the front office.  Even better, get your friends and family to donate theirs!!!  Those codes could translate into FREE MONEY for our school.  Thank you.
