Did you know that your regular online purchases can earn cash for A.R. Lord students? When you visit the FLIPGIVE portal site, you can make purchases for goods, services and gift cards directly from popular retailers such as Amazon, Wayfair, The Bay, Old Navy, Nike, Indigo, Expedia, Home Depot, ESSO, Walmart, Skip the Dishes, Hotels, Restaurants and many more! The retailers in turn will give over a small commission from their profits to our school PAC.
