St. Mary‚Äôs has long refrained from direct selling as a form of fundraising. We do however participate in a number of ‚Äúnon-selling‚ÄĚ fundraising efforts. These programs generate both cash and equipment that help keep St. Mary‚Äôs ahead of the pack. Please consider participating in as many of these programs as possible. They are all fun and easy and they Support St. Mary‚Äôs!
Note: If you find a school benefit program that we're not currently participating in, please let us know by calling (440) 243-4555.

Campbell's Labels for Education
For over 30 years, Campbell's Labels for Education‚ĄĘ program has given schools free educational equipment in exchange for labels from eligible Campbell's products. We collect Campbell's labels which are used for supplies for our classrooms and playground. It is as simple as collecting the labels and sending them in with your child.
Note: Please try not to tear the label through the center front. The front label panel is the part of the label that has to be submitted to Campbell's. However, if the front of the label does get torn, we can tape it and submit it anyway -- so don't throw them away if they get ripped!

Two bright green and yellow containers in the parking lot at both the school and the parish are available for you to drop off your newspaper, magazines, shopping catalogs, office and school papers, and old mail. Funds are sent monthly to St. Mary‚Äôs for the weight of paper collected. When you drop off your paper, please make sure that it's free of plastic, glass, metal, and trash, as it can ruin the recycling process.
