giving to charity

Did you know that you can give to charity and local schools without spending any extra money?  Many grocery stores offer programs where they give a percentage of their profits back to organizations and you can pick where it goes.  Link your store loyalty cards to local schools and organizations and a small percentage of everything you spend in the store will go back to those groups.  Since you already had to spend the money anyway, it’s great that the stores give some of it back!

Kroger:
Select what school or charity you wish to support.  This is saved on your card for every future shopping trip.  This is the only store that is working with local organizations (not just schools).

Bi-Lo:
Pick a local school to support, now when you scan your card at checkout they get a small percentage back.

Publix:
You need to get a key tag from the charity that you would like to support and scan this every time you shop.  If you also use the Publix Upromise key tag, they can be scanned in the same transaction so it won’t affect your college savings.  Many stores keep key tags for schools in their area at the registers.

Harris Teeter:
Link to one school each year.   Go here to find the school you would like to support and get you Vic card linked automatically.

Ingles:
Link to one school each year.  Go here to find your school and get your Advantage Buy Card linked.

Harvey’s:
Link to one school each year. Go here to get your Harvey’s key card linked automatically.

Safeway:
Link your card to your local school.  They do ask that schools use some of the money towards nutrition and fitness education.
