Scrip is a dollar-for-dollar exchange for gift cards and gift certificates. More than 70 local and national retailers and restaurants participate. Between 4% and 26% (depending on retailer) of the Scrip purchase amount is donated to the Alameda PTA. The PTA donates all Scrip proceeds to Alameda Elementary, which uses the funds for curriculum support, technology purchases, and staff professional development. Parents may purchase Scrip gift cards and gift certificates each week throughout the school year. Parent volunteers run the Scrip program, helping with weekly data entry, filling orders, copying fliers and order forms, and coordinating volunteers.

This is a “no cost to you” fundraiser. Certain products contain BoxTop logos. Community members clip these BoxTop labels from products and bring them to school. PTA volunteers collect the labels and submit them to General Mills (the primary sponsor of the program). Alameda School receives 10 cents for every BoxTop label we submit. General Mills issues a check to the school. Proceeds are used for classroom supply purchases. The BoxTops collection box is located in the Alameda front lobby.
Similar to BoxTops, this is a “no cost to you” fundraiser where Alameda families clip the pencil label logo off products such as Campbell’s soups, Pepperidge Farm products and Swanson broth products. PTA volunteers collect and count the labels and submit them to Campbell’s. Our school earns points through this program. We can use the points to purchase equipment and supplies through the Campbell’s L4E website. These points are typically used to purchase equipment for the Alameda PE program. The Campbell’s Labels collection box is located in the Alameda front lobby.
Parents can register at www.eScrip.com where they may select from a variety of vendors (such as Safeway, Sierra Trading Post, etc.). These retailers donate a percentage of the amount of each purchase to the Alameda PTA at no additional cost. Visit eScrip.com for more information.
Restaurant Nights & Other Community Partners
The PTA partners with local businesses such as Fire & Stone Restaurant, Pizzicato, and The Arrangement on Fremont, for fundraising events during which the partner donates a percentage of sales to the Alameda PTA. This year we're excited to offer several opportunities for you to eat out and shop locally while supporting your PTA at the same time.
We've had 3 great events this Fall including:
Look for more events this coming Spring!
Every year Alameda families have an opportunity to order merchandise featuring the Alameda logo (t-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, tote bags, etc.). Parent volunteers help with the ordering process and with the distribution of orders.
This year's sale has now closed. Thank you to everyone who placed an order!
