Harris Teeter makes spring bloom early for local schools
Together in Education donations climb over $5.9 million

As spring fever begins to run ramped through the halls of local schools, Harris Teeter’s recent Together in Education (TIE) payout will help make sure the season is in full bloom.  Schools will be able to use their monies raised for school field trips, spring athletics, and a variety of other much needed necessities.

 

Over 155,738 parents and supporters are taking advantage of Harris Teeter's TIE program.  Their VIC card links allowed Harris Teeter to mail $337,565 to schools in its second scheduled TIE contribution of the year.   Last week a total of 678 checks went out to 96 cities and 47 counties throughout the six states Harris Teeter serves.

 

It isn't too late for customers to participate in TIE and it is easy.  Customers sign up with their VIC card and when they purchase Harris Teeter brand products, a percentage of those purchase dollars goes to the schools of their choice.  Shoppers simply link the school of their choice to their VIC card. Families can link up to five schools from preschool through 12th grade and Harris Teeter will evenly distribute the money across the different school accounts.

 

Harris Teeter is proud of our efforts to support area schools and encourages everyone to link their VIC card to their school and “be a part of the solution.”
