Welcome to the Immanuel Manna Program!
As we mentioned recently, The Manna Group was recently acquired by Great Lakes Scripts Organization, which is the largest such program in the U.S. We’ve spent the last few weeks digging into and learning about what the program has to offer, and our general assessment is that we as a congregation and a school will stand to benefit from this shift.
Our organization is now registered, but now it is your turn to register your family, which you can do by going to www.shopwithscrip.com and clicking on the ‘Register’ button at the top of the page. Next, click ‘Join a Scrip Program.’ You will then need to enter our organization’s unique enrollment code (E33D216655877). This code allows the ShopWithScrip system to link your account activity with our organization. Next, fill in all the required information and click ‘Register.’ You will be asked to select two challenge questions and provide answers, which will be required if you forget your password. Keep in mind that your answers are case-sensitive.
For our next order (which is slated for Sunday, June 11th), we will be using ShopWithScrip. As such, we’ve included a family user guide that should more fully articulated the in’s and out’s of how to order with ShopWithScrip. In addition, a list of the gift cards is also available. These new cards seem to generally align with Manna (some small differences in terms of denominations).
Also, we have added local scripts, and have transitioned the likes of Woodmans, Squire, Manor, and will look to add other local establishments to the program over time. If you have any suggestions in this regard, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
As you can appreciate, we still have more to learn about the program, but hope that you find this change value added as well. Thank you again for your support of this program.
