OLMA and Pizza Hut BLACKOUT Cancer

By | OLMA Headlines, Support OLMA

Our Lady of Mercy Academy, Pizza Hut Pizza and a packed house of fans dressed in black joined forces to BLACKOUT Cancer. The event took place as the OLMA Villagers battled Buena High School on the basketball court in OLMA’s
Carew Hall.  OLMA took home both JV and Varsity wins.

“Win or lose, tonight’s game was all about supporting Go4theGoal, an organization that helps kids with cancer achieve their goals,” said Matt Lenguadoro, Athletic Director, OLMA.  “Our athletes, coaches and parents are passionate about helping others and wanted to support this organization, so we decided to dedicate a game to doing just that.” For a $5 donation, fans were treated to a great game, free pizza and an #OLMACares shirt.  More than $1,700 was raised in support of Go4theGoal.

Basketball is one of 13 competitive sports offered at OLMA, South Jersey’s all-girls school. Located on a 47-acre campus in Newfield, NJ, OLMA students strive for pride, passion and purpose in all they do, think and say; a spirit of sisterhood that forever bonds them in faith and friendship; and an environment of achievement, empowerment, leadership and service. For more information, visit our website at OLMANJ.ORG.

Go4theGoal works to improve the lives of children battling cancer by providing financial assistance, granting special wishes, developing unique hospital programs, and funding innovative research. Learn more about Go4thGoal and how you can help make a difference by visiting Go4theGoal.org.

Shop with SCRIP and Earn Money to Spend

By | Support OLMA

If a cashier offered you a few dollars back at the grocery store, would you say “no thanks?” Of course not! The same idea applies to scrip. You’ll earn money just by using a gift card to pay for your normal purchases instead of credit or debit.

The benefits of scrip:

  • No extra time, money, or energy spent.
  • No selling unwanted products to your family and friends.
  • Earnings add up quickly— families can earn $1,000 or more per year.
  • It’s a great budgeting tool, and it fits with every financial situation.
  • Online ordering lets us order and receive electronic gift cards whenever we want — even in the store itself when we’re ready to check out..
  • The funds you earn are immediately accessible.
  • It’s habit forming— you’ll want to use scrip all year long.
Plus, we have over 700 retailers to choose from, so you can use SCRIP on practically every purchase!  All rebates come directly to OLMA.  We keep half and the other half goes into an account set up for your daughter.  The money you earn can be used toward any OLMA expense:  tution, field trip fees, supplies, etc.   When you consider that some retailers donate back 17% or more, the dollars add up more quickly than you think.  Give it a try.  Go to ShopWithSCRIP to get started.
