Don’t Take a Break from Making a Difference!
Summer is break time, but not for contributions...  Use your Schnucks e-scrip card (or pick up one in the Gathering Space). It costs you nothing, but Schnucks contributes a percentage of your purchase to Faith Des Peres every time you swipe it at the checkout. The contributions you generate simply by shopping at Schnucks (which you do anyway) helps build a stronger church and allows us to do more for others. Enjoy your summer and be sure to keep up the good work – use your red Schnucks Community or Customer Card every time you shop. Need more information?
