Escrip for Schools

Escrip is an easy way to raise money for our school.  All you have to do is go to escrip.com and assign your Safeway or Vons purchases to Ocean Alternative Education Center. You also need to renew your membership each year.  If you have family members out of the area, there are many other merchants that partner with escrip.  That's all it takes!
