Escrip and hundreds of merchant partners have created a system that rewards customer loyalty by contributing a percentage of purchases to Sherwood Forest PTA. You shop the way you like to shop for groceries, clothing, travel and entertainment. Sherwood Forest's parents and teachers can help earn hundreds of dollars for the school simply by swiping their credit card at places like Bartells and Best Buy. This is done at no EXTRA cost to you. A percentage of your purchase goes right back to Sherwood!

If you're already registered, every year you still need to reconfirm which school you want the money to go to. So sign-up or double check your account today at www.escrip.com.
