The first day of school is completed! This month our rowers focus on getting settled into their new class schedule and preparing for the Stuart Crew Open House scheduled for October 1st. Families are stocking up on snacks, lunches, and additional school supplies, and when using gift cards purchased through the Crew fundraiser add to the funds to be used during the upcoming season.

It’s easy to make a difference. Simply e-mail the retailer name and gift card quantity to Stuart Crew Booster volunteer Sonja Schrock. You make the gift card purchase, and the retailer makes the donation to the team.

Last fiscal year, the scrip gift card fundraiser earned $3,499.89 for the Stuart Crew Boosters! Thank you to all those who contributed by ordering gift cards through our scrip program.

To give you an idea of the fundraising potential that would benefit the team, below are some participating retailers with their donation percentages:

Shoppers (5%)

Home Depot (4%)

TGI Fridays (9%)

Einstein Bagels (10%)

Click for a full list of participating retailers. E-mail your order by Wednesday, August 30 by 8 pm.

Thank you for your continued support of our Stuart Rowers.
