The following programs are all ways that you can help Mill Falls when you shop, without any extra cost to you. Simply review the list of shopping opportunities below, consider where and how you shop, and what program(s) may best work for you.
While participation drives the size of the profits we will see from these efforts, please don’t ‘overshop’ on behalf of Mill Falls. Remember…pennies from these programs count; but cash donations to the school are what we need most.
Thank you for your ongoing support, big and small!

Shop with Scrip: Fundraising While You Shop
Mill Falls families and friends can purchase gift cards online from many popular vendors of clothing, food, books, household goods, supplies and services via the Shop with Scrip program. Our school gets a small percentage from each purchase (the % is noted on line when you shop for the cards). Other schools have found this to be a great source of extra dollars when they have strong participation. Families need to simply plan ahead so they have the gift cards in their ‘pocket’ for the vendors they may use or visit.
Holiday time is a great time to take advantage of this program.
The site also offers special discounts regularly.
For more information, visit http://www.shopwithscrip.com/index.aspx. Once there, you can set up your Family Account. Please note, there are just two ways to pay – by check (made out to Mill Falls Charter School and brought to school) or via SCRIP’s PrestoPay option which links to your bank account and withdrawals the cost of your oder(s) directly. Purchases cannot be made by credit card.
Our school enrollment code is: 228A3E9L34664.

Box Tops for Education & Labels for Education
Mill Falls families and friends can collect “Box Tops” and Campbell’s soup labels (also known as “Labels for Education”). Schools receive 10¢ for each Box Top redeemed. Box Tops can be found on many popular products besides boxes! Mill Falls mom, Lauren Joyner, is organizing the collection effort. For more info, go to: http://www.boxtops4education.com and/or http://www.labelsforeducation.com. There is a collection site at school right near Susanne’s desk for Box Tops and Labels.
Hannaford Helps Schools Program
Mill Falls is a registered school in the Hannaford Helps Schools program. Mill Falls families and friends who shop at any Hannaford store can help raise dollars for Mill Falls while they shop! There are over 700 items in the store that are part of the program. For every 4 participating products purchased by customers, Hannaford generates 3 ‘school dollars.’
At checkout, Hannaford customers will receive a printed receipt for ‘school dollars’ their purchase has generated. Please note: Those receipts may only be deposited in the Mill Falls ‘school tower’ at the Hannaford on Hannover Street. (MFCS can only participate at the Hanover St. store).
We encourage you to click here to learn about the program.

effort-free giving programs
