Fresh & Easy Launches School Fundraising Program

Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market has launched a school fundraising program called “Shop for Schools,” where participating schools can get a $1 cash donation for every $20 spent at a Fresh & Easy store.

Eligible schools include kindergarten through eighth-grade schools within a three-mile radius of one of Fresh & Easy’s stores in Arizona, California or Nevada. The program will run from Feb. 1, 2009 through March 31, 2009.

Registered schools have to mobilize parents and students to shop at Fresh & Easy and then collect and submit receipts for verification. Fresh & Easy will cut a check to the school for the amount raised. The money raised can be used for whatever the school needs most.

“With school budgets increasingly under pressure, our customers are looking for ways to help raise money,” said Fresh & Easy CEO Tim Mason. “We created Shop for Schools to be part of the solution and give back to the neighborhood. The money raised can be used on whatever each school needs most – like books, sports equipment, instruments or computers. The more customers shop at Fresh & Easy, the more money they can raise for their schools.”

Information, rules and regulations for the program are available at freshandeasy.com/shopforschools.
