CARLISLE, Pa. — Giant Food Stores and Martin's Food Markets on Wednesday announced a $3 million donation to 2,057 public and private schools through its A+ School Rewards program for the 2013-2014 school year. Since the program launched in 2005, more than $19 million has been donated to local schools throughout participating markets in the four states Giant/Martin's operates.
Giant/Martin's A+ School Rewards program allows local schools to earn cash for technology, scholarships, school programs, field trips and playgrounds. After customers had designated the school(s) of their choice, A+ School Rewards points accrued with each purchase made using a BonusCard from Oct. 6, 2013 through March 22, 2014.
“Thank you to all of our customers and local schools who took a few moments to sign up for our popular school fundraiser and shopped with their BonusCard,” stated Tom Lenkevich, president of Giant/Martin's. “Year after year, we are gratified by the strong response.”
