Even if you are not a parent you can still still help the local schoolchildren with your grocery store purchases - without spending any extra money yourself.
Schoolpop - if you buy purchases from online merchants using schoolpop as a gateway, the school gets a significant portion of the profits. Major online stores are included - Discovery Store, LL Bean, etc. etc. Please see the entry points for the individual local schools below.
Boxtops offers another online shopping gateway, and the percentage that goes to your school is quite explicit. Some of these can be significant, for example 5% at Target. The program is limited to K-8 schools. escrip also has an online gateway. If you registered your Safeway card you are already registered there.
Office Depot has its own 5% program, but you must inform the cashier at every check-out and it works only if you are purchasing certain school supplies.

And if you are a parent with a child in the TP schools, public or private, you can help us by carrying back school library books that have been returned here by mistake.Posted by library at November 28, 2005 12:06 PM
