Harveys Offers Customers Opportunity To Support Local Schools With $250,000 In Free Educational EquipmentSep 22nd, 2011 | By Submitted | Category: Editorials, Front Page
Harveys is offering its customers an easy way to provide free educational equipment and supplies to local schools in Georgia, Florida and South Carolina.
The Harveys Hometown Educational Rewards program gives parents and supporters the opportunity to link their personal Hometown Rewards Key to local schools. Each time customers shop with their personal Hometown Rewards Key, their schools of choice automatically earn points towards $250,000 in free educational equipment. This money is divided between schools through a points system for the year, and a customer may select two schools for the program.
“At Harveys Supermarkets, we are committed to making a positive impact in our local communities, and we are proud to offer the Harveys Hometown Educational Rewards program,” said Barry Robinson, vice president of Harveys and Reid’s stores. “During the 2010-2011 school year, we donated more than $240,000 in school equipment to schools in Georgia, South Carolina and Florida.”
All of the customer’s grocery purchases will earn credit for their designated school with the exception of alcohol, tobacco products, money orders, gift certificates, pharmacy, sales tax and stamps. Throughout the year, schools redeem the accumulated points in exchange for free educational items from the Harveys catalog. Items include, but are not limited to, books, computers and sports equipment. Shoppers may support participating schools by linking their personal Rewards Key in one of three ways:
By completing the simple online registration form at www.harveys-supermarkets.com/OurCommunity/HometownEducationalRewards
By completing a supporter sign up form with their school
By visiting a local Harveys Supermarket and registering their Rewards Key at Customer Service
