While there are specific events designed to help support the mission of St. Joseph School, there are also simple ways in our every day lives that can help raise significant funds. Simple things, like clipping box tops, saving soup labels, and shopping at stores and Web sites you already frequent can provide a steady stream of funds.
Please review the following programs and retailers and their procedures to sign up, click, and/or clip your way to ‘free money’ for Saint Joseph School. And please remember, we are not asking you to spend more or shop differently, just to take advantage of the opportunities that these retailers provide. Thank you!

“Big Hearted Books Program”
St. Joseph School now has a “Big Hearted Books Program” container. “Big Hearted Books Program” is dedicated to finding good homes for your books, CDs, DVDs and videos so that they can be reused and kept out of the trash. Books are sold in their Charity Book Sale, which raises money for many local nonprofits, sent overseas through their Books for Troops program, given to local educators through their Books for Teachers program, donated to local groups in need, or sold online and at their Used Book Superstores. They strive to both save books from becoming waste, as well as ensure that they will be used in the best way possible.
St. Joseph School is dedicated to helping the planet and becoming a Greener School. By donating books we are not only helping to save the planet but the school also benefits. “Big Hearted Books Program” will weigh the items collected and donate .03/ lb to our school. Please join us in this effort. It is very easy!!! Bring in your old CDs, DVDs and books and deposit them in the container in the teacher’s parking lot. (magazines and textbooks are not allowed)
