Our Jesse Tree gift tags are available starting this weekend, Saturday, November 21st.  All requests are in the form of gift cards.  This allows people to choose what they truly need.  We will be supporting Catholic Charities in East Brunswick and Bridgewater, Center for Great Expectations, Women’s Resource Center, the Sister students at Assumption College as well as our neighbors in need.

Requests from the agencies include gift cards from Amazon, CVS, Dunkin, Jersey Mike’s, ShopRite, Stop ‘n Shop, Target, Visa, Walgreens and Walmart.  Please make sure the gift card is marked with the value.  If there are no tags left on the tree and you would like to help, simply purchase a gift card of your choice.  Gift cards need to be dropped off at the church or rectory the first week in December so that they can be turned over to the agencies and the recipients and then have time to shop.  This has been such a challenging year for so many – your support and generosity is greatly appreciated.


Please consider purchasing gift cards through Scrip, a new school fundraiser.  Four percent of each purchase goes towards the School of Saint Elizabeth.  Now your purchase to help a family at Christmas helps our school too!

Here’s how it works:

  • Shop gift cards from over 750+ brands
  • St. E’s receives a donation for each card purchased
  • You get to support your child’s school with everyday purchases

Download the RaiseRight App for your mobile device OR visit ShopWithScrip.com from a computer.

Use Organization Code: LF4B25E274395

A portion of each gift card purchase will automatically be donated to School of St. Elizabeth. It could not be easier!  This holiday season, use these e-gift cards automatically OR have traditional cards shipped to your doorstep for gift giving or everyday shopping! (Guess what, Shoprite is on the list – imagine how much we can earn through your everyday grocery shopping?)

We need your help– please reach out to Deb Ostrowski, ostrowskid@steschool.org, with any questions, or for how the ShopRite gift card process works.
