- We will again be participating in a gift card fundraiser called Scrip. Scrip is just a way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards. You purchase gift cards from your organization at face value, and your coordinator orders those cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate for Helping Hands, Inc. It’s really that simple!   Simply return the attached form with your check made out to Helping Hands, Inc. We will be placing two orders for the season. The first order is due by November 2, 2018 and the second no later than December 3, 2018. All orders will arrive prior to Christmas.   The order form was mailed last week, and is available on our website or at the office. SCRIP ORDER FORM


-We will be participating in the Poinsettia Flower Sale Fundraiser this year, and the forms are also attached!!   If you would like a form in color, please let us know, or check it out on our website.
