Easy ways to raise additional
                                funds for your Parish School:

1)If your company is participating in the United Way, you may ask for the form that you can designate your donation be given to Northeast Regional Catholic School, 1630-4th Street N.E., Minneapolis, MN 55413. You then receive credit for participating in your company's United Way campaign and you help with your parish school.

2) Kemp's Dairy is helping schools. Save the covers off milk containers or cut out coupons on the cartons and return them to the school and the school receives 5 cents for each one.

3) Target has a "Take Charge of Education" Program. If you are willing to apply for a Target charge card, at the bottom of the application there is a spot to write in "School's Name". Please write in "Northeast Regional Catholic School" (make sure you print all four words) and the school will receive 1 % for every purchase you make with the charge card. If you already have a charge card call 1-800-326-6142 and ask them to designate the 1 % donation of your purchases to "Northeast Regional Catholic School" or go online and visit target.com to enroll in the program.

4) Keep saving the General Mills box tops and th Campbell Soup labels.

              Thank you for your participation!
