Helping Catholic schools
Diocesan Catholic schools have simple ways for you to help with fundraising for the local school, whether you have children in the school or not. Many schools collect Box Tops, so clip those Box Top labels and drop them off. Be sure to contact the school as to where their collection site is. Also, many schools provide SCRIP gift cards. Often these are sold after Mass on weekends, but contact your local Catholic school for ways to purchase them and for a list of businesses that offer SCRIP gift cards. There is no extra cost to you. The business gives a percentage, anywhere from 3-10 percent, back to the school. So call your local Catholic school and purchase gift certificates before you go shopping or for a gift.
Catholic schools in the Diocese of Duluth have begun accepting registrations for the 2017-18 school year. Call the school in your local area to find out about its registration information.
