Earn Free Money for our School!
There are quite a few ways you can support Maya Lin when you’re doing your normal, everyday shopping:

Cat, our former VP of Fundraising, gave a nice presentation about eScrip and BenefitMobile at the September 2016 PTA meeting. But it still holds up! You can check it out here.

Sign up for eScrip here. Register your grocery store, credit/debit and other purchase cards, AND start your online shopping through the eScrip Online Mall to maximize your buying power.

If you shop at Lucky/SaveMart/FoodMaxx stores: please create an eScrip account and then Opt-In at If you have the previous Shares card it must be re-connected to Maya Lin.

Install the BenefitMobile app on your phone. It’s like buying yourself a gift card for the places you shop already! Some percentage of the gift cards you buy for yourself will go to Maya Lin. Retailers include Starbucks, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, CVS, any many more.

The Android app is here.
The iOS (Apple) app is here.
