Charlotte, NC - Harris Teeter is pleased to announce that, through its Together in Education (TIE) program, the company donated $1,388,153.36 to participating schools during the 2008/2009 school year.
The company established TIE in 1998 in an effort to give customers the chance to show support for area schools. Harris Teeter made it simple for shoppers to participate. By linking their Very Important Customer (VIC) cards to a school’s TIE code and then purchasing Harris Teeter brand products or filling a prescription at the pharmacy, shoppers help raise money for the school and/or schools of their choice! Since 1998, Harris Teeter has donated over $12.7 million to participating schools; the schools are able to spend the donated money on those things the schools deem appropriate.
