The Home and School Association has three main fundraisers per year to support operations and enrich education at St. Mary Help of Christians:
Harvest Celebration – This fundraiser is the largest fundraiser of the year. It is held annually in October. There is a raffle, silent auction, and live auction which includes projects made by the students of St. Mary. This is a fun social evening complete with live music.
Scrip – Ongoing way to support families and the school. Scrip offers big earnings for our school with no selling— it’s fundraising while you shop. Contact Lacy Solbro for more information – 320 – 291-1455
Chip Shoppe – This fundraiser is held in the spring. Chip Shoppe products are sold to family and friends. The Chip Shoppe has a variety of product lines which include cookie dough, frozen foods, candy, jewelry, gift wrap, and many other items.
Service Saturday – Service Saturday is the second largest annual fundraiser for St. Mary HOC School and is held in April. Our school chooses to do a Service Saturday not only to raise money for school, but also to provide a service to the members of our community who might need a little extra help. The school asks people of our parish community, particularly senior citizens, if they need any help with outdoor projects such as lawn raking, garden cleaning, litter pick up, etc. This service is provided free by the school’s students and parents.
In addition, other gifts and donations are accepted at any time. To make a donation to the school, please contact the Principal at 251-3937 or the parish office at 252-1799
