        Information on Shoparoo  

        This year we are participating in a hassle-free fundraiser called Shoparoo. Nationwide, 7,000+ schools are already fundraising through Shoparoo and we see it as great opportunity for us to make a difference this year.

         

        All you need to do is take pictures of your grocery receipts with the Shoparoo app made for your smartphone.  It doesn’t matter where you shop or what you buy - every receipt submitted results in a donation to our school!

         

        So, what are you waiting for?  Simply download the free app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store by searching ‘shoparoo’ and then select our school as your chosen cause.  Since there is no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo, be sure to invite your friends and neighbors to join in – every receipt counts!

         
        Anyone having troubles with downloading the app can bring in their receipts and we will take the picture so our school can receive the Shoparoo points!
