Ways to help our School

Box Tops for Education

Clip Box Tops form your favorite products and send them in to school. Box Tops are each worth 10 cents and they add up quick. I just discovered there is a Box Top app which can add an additional 20 cents per item. We are still listed as Concord Christian School.

My Coke Rewards

Collect codes off of bottle caps or the inside of cartons. Drop them off, send them to school, or set up an account at MyCokeRewards.com. Enter the codes and select River Oak Christian Academy, so that we can receive reward points.

Scrips Program

If you are interested in learning more about the Scrip program, please contact Crystal Wessing at crystal.wessing@yahoo.com. She is willing to assist parents and grandparents in getting set up on the Scrip program.

Gerbes Community Rewards Program

River Oak will get credit for every purchase its members make using their registered Plus card. The more they shop with Gerbes the more opportunity River Oak has to earn even bigger rewards. Encourage all you know who have a Gerbes Plus card to support River Oak Christian Academy!

Our assigned NPO number is 14474.

Amazon Smile

If you are an Amazon shopper use Amazon Smile for yet another way to help out our school. They will send a certain percentage of the sale to our school. We are still listed as Concord Christian School.
