Giant Food, the regional grocery chain, is about to launch the 2018-2019 A+ School Rewards Program. The fundraiser allows customers to donate to local schools through qualified purchases.
The program has awarded $36 million since the initiative launched in 2000. Schools in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Delaware have benefited through assistance for technology upgrades, scholarship programs, field trips and playground repairs.
“For nearly 30 years we have worked hand in hand with our customers to support our local schools, delivering substantial resources that add value to the educational experience in our communities,” said Gordon Reid, President of Giant Food. “We place great value on the students’ education and are honored to play a supporting role in their success through the annual A+ School Rewards Program.”
Customers can register at www.giantfood.com/aplus starting now through March 2019 and select up to two schools in their community to benefit from eligible purchases. Last year’s participants do not need to re-register but are encouraged to confirm their selected school.
