Helping Hands Gift Card Programs

Reduce Tuition Costs for School / PREP and help parish families in need

What is Helping Hands?


Helping Hands is a gift card fundraiser that returns a portion of the gift card value to the school/parish - and you - in the form of a tuition credit. When you purchase Helping Hands gift cards, you're purchasing negotiable gift cards that are used just like cash. You can use these gift cards to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you reduce your tuition costs and help our parish.

85% of the rebate percentage listed for each merchant will be applied to the 2020-2021 school year. To correctly allocate rebates, all purchasers are required to complete the Scrip Program Agreement annually. Rebates may be used as a tuition credit to the School, PREP, Early Childhood Education Center, Allentown Central Catholic High School, and college/university tuition.

Don't have students in our school or PREP program? Please help needy parish families or the parish itself by allocating your rebates to the Angel (scholarships) or Parish Fund on your agreement.

Online shopping at will further reduce your tuition. Several local orthodontists and merchants participate with our program as well.
