PURCHASE, N.Y. and QUINCY, Mass. — Stop & Shop has announced that customers can help earn money for their local schools when they grocery shop through Stop & Shop's school fundraiser dubbed "A+ School Rewards."
There is no limit to what schools can do with their A+ School Rewards, including earning cash for technology, scholarships, school programs, field trips, playgrounds and other educational needs.
In the 2012-2013 school year, St. Charles School on Staten Island, the program's No. 1 rewards leader, raised $22,822.10 to purchase new computers for its classrooms and improve its technology systems.
"Stop & Shop is committed to be a better neighbor in every community in which we operate," stated Judi Palmer, director of marketing and external communications at Stop & Shop New England. "The A+ School Rewards program is a great way for our customers and families to raise money to help support their local schools."
To participate in the program and help local schools earn money, customers must sign up each year and designate up to two schools by visiting their local Stop & Shop or at StopandShop.com/aplus. A+ School Rewards are accrued with each purchase made using one's Stop & Shop loyalty card beginning Oct. 4 and continuing through March 20.
Beginning in November, current school totals can be found on the A+ website. Since 2009, Stop & Shop's A+ School Rewards program has raised more than $7 million to help both public and private schools in the Northeast region fulfill their academic and enrichment needs.
