Harris Teeter established TIE in 1998 to provide financial support for area schools.  When customers link their Very Important Customer (VIC) cards to a school’s TIE code and then purchase a Harris Teeter brand product or fill a prescription at the pharmacy, Harris Teeter will donate a portion of that purchase amount back to the school of the shopper’s choice!  Since the program’s inception, Harris Teeter has donated over $13.1 million to participating schools; the schools are able to spend the donated money on those things the schools deem appropriate.
