EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--()--With schools now back in session, Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market today kicked off its fifth-annual Shop for Schools fundraising program. Through the program, Fresh & Easy has given more than $4 million to neighborhood schools to use for whatever they needed most.
“Schools need ways to easily raise money now more than ever, which is why we’re bringing our Shop for Schools fundraising program back for the fifth time”
Shop for Schools is an easy way for parents, educators and the neighborhood to raise much-needed money for local schools. From September 12 to December 31, 2012, participating schools will receive a $1 cash donation for every $20 Fresh & Easy receipt collected. Fresh & Easy will also award the top-fundraising school in Arizona, Nevada and the top two highest-earning schools in California each with a $5,000 bonus. Schools can register online at freshandeasy.com/shopforschools until October 1.
In addition to earning money through receipt collection, participating schools can also have their own Shopping Night, a fundraising event at their local Fresh & Easy store. During a school’s designated Shopping Night, 5% of the store’s total sales are donated back to the school.
“Schools need ways to easily raise money now more than ever, which is why we’re bringing our Shop for Schools fundraising program back for the fifth time,” said Fresh & Easy CEO Tim Mason. “We’re proud to have donated $4 million to our local schools during a time when budgets continue being cut – and we’re looking forward to helping students and educators raise even more this year.”
