HSA Fundraisers and Events

We have goals, and we have fantastic families and community members helping us achieve them! We encourage you to check back often for updates. Thank you.

Help Us Earn Cash and Supplies with Free Rewards Programs

Each year, St. Rita participates in several rewards programs. Local grocery stores (and Amazon!) allow you (the shopper) to identify St. Rita as the school you’d like to support; every time you shop, we get a percentage of the sale in the form of points (that can be used for school supplies) or cash. Last year, we earned over $1000 through Stop & Shop's program and over 130,000 points through ShopRite! We have big goals this year, and we need your help to achieve them. Please click on the links below to register your store cards, and ask your local family and friends to do the same!

  • Visit amazonsmile.com, and anytime you purchase an eligible item, Amazon will donate a portion of the profit to our school! Select “Divine Mercy Parish Corporation” as your charity, and St. Rita School will benefit every time you shop.
  • Link your Stop & Shop Card to St. Rita School, and we’ll earn cash when you buy groceries! Visit Stop & Shop online and use School ID: 06434.
  • Link your ShopRite Price Plus card to St. Rita School, and help us earn school supplies! Sign up with ShopRite online and use School ID: 50073, or email your PricePlus card number to Alice Kuether.

Thank you for your support!

Fundraising Goal: $115,000
