For all:


Please remember these easy ways to help our schools financially:


Save your Box Tops for Education coupons, found on General Mills products, and Campbell’s Soup labels.  Both can be redeemed to help support our schools.  These can be dropped off at the Creslane office or in the Campbell’s Soup barrel in the video department at Ray’s.  


Be sure to save your Ray’s receipts to help support the Grad Night Party for the Class of 2010.  Bring them to any of the schools, City Hall or Siuslaw Valley Bank.  Recycling your newspapers in the Eugene Mission boxes just north of Mobile Glass on Highway 99 is another easy way to support Creswell’s seniors.  Thanks!!  (It won’t be long before these efforts will be helping the Class of 2011—this year’s graduation is just two weeks away!)


Another easy way to give to your school is by signing up for eScrip.  Simply visit to register any or all of your debit/credit cards.  When you use that card at a participating merchant, they will donate a certain percentage of the value of your purchase to the school, group, or organization of your choice--which we certainly hope will be one of our schools!  Locally, PC Market and Safeway stores donate up to 4%.  If you like to shop online, there's also an online eScrip mall you can visit to shop at a participating online store--and there are a LOT.  And, there's a new piece of software that you can download that will automatically remind you to log in when you visit a participating online store so that you get points for your purchase.  Of course, this service, by definition, tracks your purchases, so please read the eScrip privacy policy carefully, as well as those of any merchants you are purchasing from. Visit to get a list of all participating national stores as well. Don't forget to renew every year or log in to change your data if you add or remove a credit card.
