Stop & Shop’s A+ School Rewards program allows local schools to earn cash for scholarships, technology, sports equipment, field trips and other educational needs when customers designate the school as the school of their choice. A+ School Rewards points accrue when customers make purchases using their Stop & Shop card.
“At a time when school budgets are so tight and every penny counts, the A+ School Rewards program allows Stop & Shop customers to help their children’s school by directing a portion of their sales receipt to programs and projects that the principal and teachers have deemed worthy, but do not have the funds necessary to provide it,” said Don Sussman, President, Stop & Shop New York Metro Division. “This partnership between our customers and schools in our community allows Stop & Shop to help our schools be the best they can be.”
For the 2013-2014 school year, Stop & Shop is donating $1 million to 1,740 local schools in the New York Metro area as a result of its 2013/2014 A+ School Rewards Program. Since 2009, Stop & Shop’s A+ School Rewards program has raised more than $3 million to help both public and private schools in the New York Metro region fulfill their academic and enrichment needs.
