Melissa sent the following ‘thank you’ to share publicly in recognition of her great appreciation for the generous spirit of those who came to help.
Take care of your everyday, special-project and gift shopping by purchasing gift cards through Mount Madonna School (MMS). We will place orders weekly.
Here’s how it works:
Scrip-participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to MMS at a discount. MMS families and supporters buy the cards at full face value and redeem them at full face value. The retailer gives a percentage of each card’s value to MMS. Everybody wins!
