OBT participates in the Great Lakes Scrip Program. We sell scrip, i.e. gift certificates, from national and local retailers. They're the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Over 700 retailers participate in this program so chances are there will be scrip available for at least some of the stores where you shop.
So how does this work? It's simple -- retailers participating in the scrip program agree to sell gift certificates to us at a discount. You buy the certificates for full face value, you redeem them for full face value, and our temple keeps the difference as revenue.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our temple without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program. Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.
