Easy way to support schools

With little effort and no cost, you can financially support our schools.

Both Shaw’s market and Stop and Shop now have programs that contribute money to schools based on shopper purchases. All that is necessary is to go online and register your store card; then, money is automatically added to the school’s account every time you shop. You may also choose to divide your points between more than one school if you’d like.

Shaw’s rewards points only on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, while Stop and Shop does so seven days a week. Shaw’s also contributes in direct correlation between money spent and points, while Stop and Shop has a formula that awards money using a calculation of percentages from all participating schools. Neither one of these programs changes any other rewards, like gas points, which you may already receive.

To register your card and start helping, just go to either www. stopandshop.com/aplus or to www.Shaws.com and then choose the community rewards tab.

Please consider taking a few minutes to register your card if you shop at either or both of these stores. It’s such an easy way to help the schools.

If you have any questions, contact me at 423-2013 or dbauer104@ cox.net.
