Please consider ordering gift cards for groceries, gas, restaurants, etc. through EGCA as a painless fundraiser.  There are plenty of order forms in the office.  Orders get placed every Friday morning.  Cards arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday of the following week.  This fundraiser will run throughout the year until May.  Great way to begin your Christmas shopping. There is no charge to you at all; You get what you pay for.   For example, a $10.00 Subway gift card costs you $10.00.  Each company or restaurant donates a portion of the sale to EGCA.  It's that easy! Fundraisers help keep tuition costs down.
