Credit Cards

News - Lake View
Submitted by Lake View Plantation on September 14, 2016 - 3:00pm

We are happy to announce that we now accept any major debit/credit cards! We use Municipay so there is a 2.95% fee ($3 minimum) that will be added on to your purchase total. This is a service where the card holder pays the transaction fee instead of the tax payer. I can accept credit cards over the phone to eliminate the extra wait time of receiving funds through the mail.

Back to School Supplies Outreach was a HUGE success!

Submitted by Izzy on September 1, 2016 - 8:41pm

Our Back to School Supplies Outreach was a HUGE success this year!! We had over $2,100.00 in cash donated on top of all the supplies purchased by people. The total of items purchased and donated this year were: 8,751. Roughly that is: 2,971 items delivered to each of the 3 schools. We ordered $1,384.00 worth of supplies from PARK STREET DI$COUNT in order to support a business family that supports this Outreach. Our schools and the children will certainly be blessed thanks to everyone this year.

I had found a Backpack blessing tag this week on the Internet. I thought, "we will do this next year", as I knew there was not time to do it this year... Read More
