Fundscrip
You only have to donate the time it takes to buy the cards!! We all eat, we all buy groceries, we all have birthday, and we all buy gas. So why not buy your groceries with pre-paid cards for YIGS or Food Basics? You can get them right here at the church on Sunday mornings after the service or in the office during the week. This is one way that we can all contribute to fundraising here at St. Thomas’!

We now have Tim Horton’s cards in denominations of $15 or $25 dollars! Please see Tracy during office hours or Catherine Thompson and Mary Mitchell after Sunday service in Browning Hall. Doing a big spring home renovation? We have Home Depot cards too!
