MILFORD, Ohio, Aug. 30, 2016 — Leisure Systems Inc., the franchisor of Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts, has become the first campground network to join Great Lakes Scrip, a national program that makes it easy for businesses to provide fundraising support for schools, churches and other non-profit organizations.
Businesses affiliated with Great Lakes Scrip programs donate a percentage of their gift card sales to the non-profit organizations their customers select.
“We are the first park resort company in their portfolio,” said Jim Westover, vice president of operations for Milford, Ohio-based Leisure Systems Inc., which is donating 10 percent of its Scrip gift card sales to the schools, churches and other non-profit organizations its campers want to support.
“This is a great way for us to show our support for the non-profit organizations that our campers care about. It’s also a great way to raise brand awareness of Jellystone Parks,” Westover said, adding that the Scrip program resonates well with families.
