Please help McCall earn money throughout the year with these FREE programs:

GIANT A+ School Rewards!

Register your BONUSCARD starting on September 15th at Giant! Our McCall School ID is 20919. Good News!! You no longer have to re-register your bonuscard number each school year. You should check your account online to verify the correct school assignment. You can select up to 2 schools to support, but BOTH schools must be entered at the time of designation (or when initially adding a school); otherwise, the last designation entered will negate any previous designation.

BOX TOPS!
Please clip and collect BOX TOPS throughout the year. Don’t forget to ask family members to save them for you too! We have two collection drives this year during the months of November and March. Classes that collect the most Box Tops will earn special rewards!
