Harris Teeter established TIE to help schools financially in the communities in which its stores are located and gives schools many opportunities to raise money.  Schools that have a TIE code can earn money when community members link their VIC cards to the TIE code and purchase Harris Teeter brand products.  Schools can also earn extra cash for valuable programs by participating in Together in Education bonus events including Teachers of Excellence, We Think Green and Sing My Jingle. 

Together in Education encourages all schools grades k-12 to apply for a TIE code and would like to remind community members to re-link their VIC cards in August.
