The SAINT-ANDRÉ Academy Playground Project had partnered with Fundscrip, which is an innovative program where cash rebates are earned on things we buy every day – groceries, gas, restaurants gift cards, electronics, clothing and home renovation products. When you, your family or friends purchase gift cards, which are spent like cash, a rebate goes back to our group! There was no additional cost to you. When you order $150 in gift cards, you pay $150 and you get gift cards worth $150! It’s that simple! Over 100 retailers are offering rebates to our group. Thank you to everyone who supported our Fundscrip campaign. This program was an easy way for you to give back to the playground fund without spending any money out of pocket.

SAINT-ANDRÉ has set up and account with the Beaumont Bottle Depot. If you’d like to help out this manner, please take your empties to the Beaumont Bottle Depot where you can have the proceeds donated to the SAINT-ANDRÉ Playground Fund. After your containers have been counted and you have received your receipt, please put the date, your name, amount and signature on a sheet that is available at the cashier’s table. That’s all it takes. All donations are greatly appreciated!

Pockets for Playgrounds
Another ongoing initiative is for the students of SAINT-ANDRÉ Academy – Pockets for Playgrounds. This special opportunity allows the kids of the school to lend a helping hand by bringing pocket change to school and dropping it into one of the jars found in any of the classrooms or in the school office. Every bit helps and this is a great way for kids to make an impact and understand the gift of giving.
