Stop & Shop donates money to local public and private schools based on dollars spent by shoppers and schools registered under its A+ plan.
Families For Excellence, Black Rock Home School coordinators, neighbors, and I are advocating for Black Rock School (public, ID# 06755) and St. Ann's (private, ID# 07518). You can choose up to three schools.
You do not need to have children in school to participate.
Two ways to register:
1) for the less computer agile, e-mail me back the number on your Stop and Shop card, all 13 numbers [front, below, and after barcode] and the first 3 letters of the last name you may have used to sign up for your card and I will enter it for you.
2) register yourself, go to www.stopandshop.com, click on Our Stores, three panels will appear, go to the far right, top item is "A+", click on that and follow the prompts. The school ID numbers are above and you can search for more schools on the site, say, a high school some of your kids may attend.
If you have trouble, choose option 1) above or hit Contact Us on the Stop and Shop website and e-mail them your difficulties.
There are currently very few families registered and already, S&S has donated a fair amount to our two schools in the neighborhood.
We all spend quite a bit at this local monopoly, let your dollars go farther and help out local schools!
