Active participation by both TIE schools and loyal Harris Teeter customers is integral to the success of the Together in Education program.  Nine hundred and thirty (930) schools will receive a check from Harris Teeter during the second payout.  This is up from the 425 schools that received a check during the first payout. In order to receive a check, schools must have accrued at least $250 by the end of the second payout period.  

Since 1998, Harris Teeter Together in Education has donated over $20 million to area schools.  In honor of this accomplishment and to say “thank you” to participants, Harris Teeter launched its TIE $100,000 Giveaway in January.  During the Giveaway, Harris Teeter is donating a total of $10,000 each week for 10 weeks to randomly selected winners and the Together in Education schools to which their VIC cards are linked. The Giveaway ends April 5, 2014; click here to learn more about the program and to read about previous winners.
