Together in Education to Surpass $10 Million in Donations
While Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, Harris Teeter’s TIE program gives shoppers a NEW way to raise funds for local schools

It seems only fitting that during its 10th year the Harris Teeter Together in Education (T.I.E.) program is scheduled to surpass $10 million in donations to local schools. Contributions of this magnitude are a major milestone in the company’s continued effort to play an active role in the communities it serves.

 

To celebrate its 10 year anniversary, Harris Teeter is adding a new way to raise money during the 2007-2008 school year.  Now, shoppers can earn money for their school when they fill prescriptions at Harris Teeter. That is right, prescriptions will now be considered private label, so for each prescription filled the same percentage as other Harris Teeter private label products will be donated to the shopper’s specified TIE school.

 

Raising funds for schools is a top priority for Harris Teeter, however, this year the company feels it is important to honor Teachers of Excellence throughout its marketing areas! Selected teachers who have committed their time and energy to the educational system and the future leaders of our society will receive a cash reward in the amount of $1,000, in honor of their efforts and commitment.  A $1,000 cash prize will also be given to the teacher’s school.  Winners will be selected on the first Wednesday of each month from October 2007 through March 2008, with 2 winners being selected during April and May.  

Don't forget supporters must re-link their VIC cards for the upcoming school year.  Everyone can link their card whether they have a child in school or not and each card can be linked to up to 5 different schools.  Schools are encouraging everyone they know to get linked and help achieve another record year of donations.

 

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