Since 2005, Giant Food Stores has donated $13 million to 2,500 public and private schools through its A+ School Rewards program, which will return for the 2012-13 school year on Oct. 7.
According to www.giantfoodstores.com, A+ School Rewards are points that accrue with each purchase using the BonusCard, kind of like gas points. At the end of each month, the A+ School Rewards are used in a calculation to determine your school's cash total, which then is automatically credited to your school's account.
Customers can support up to two schools.
Schools in the Uppper Macungie area are enrolled. They are:
- Fred J. Jaindl Elementary School
- Fogelsville Elementary School
There is no restriction on what schools can do with their A+ School Rewards. They can be used for technology, scholarships, school programs, field trips, playgrounds and other educational needs.
The program runs until March 30.
