NASHVILLE, Ga. — Harveys Supermarket 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 rewards keys, their schools of choice automatically earn points toward $250,000 in free educational equipment.
The money is divided between schools through a points system. 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 grocery purchases earn credit except for alcohol, tobacco products, money orders, gift certificates, pharmacy, sales tax and stamps.
Throughout the year, schools redeem their accumulated points in exchange for free educational items from the Harveys catalog. Items include books, computers and sports equipment.
Shoppers may support participating schools by linking their personal rewards keys in one of three ways:
• By completing the online registration form at www.harveys-supermarkets.com/OurCommunity/
• By completing a supporter signup form at a school.
• By visiting the Pembroke Harveys Supermarket and registering a rewards key at the customer service desk.
