ShopRite has pledged to donate up to $1 million to the more than 7,000 schools participating in its ShopRite For My School Program, an education rewards program powered by Box Tops for Education.
The program provides incentives to designated schools from ShopRite customers who purchase select General Mills, Wholesome Pantry Organic, Bowl & Basket, Paperbird and Paperbird Premium products. Participating products include all sizes and varieties of General Mills cereals (including Cheerios, Wheaties, Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs and more); Green Giant frozen vegetables; Betty Crocker, Old El Paso and Progresso products; and Yoplait yogurt.
By using their registered ShopRite Price Plus Club Card at checkout or through ShopRite from Home, customers collect digital “Box Tops” that are automatically credited to a customer’s school of choice. Registered ShopRite For My Schools customers earn a 10-cent bonus Box Top per participating product purchased. The Keasbey, N.J.-based grocery retailer has also pledged to donate up to $1 million to schools taking part in the ShopRite For My School Program.
“ShopRite has a strong tradition of giving back to the communities where our stores operate and that includes helping schools,” said Seth Nieman, director of marketing and sales planning for ShopRite. “ShopRite For My School offers a simple and effective way for customers to help teachers and students get the supplies they need by building the rewards right into their weekly shopping trip.”
More than 7,000 schools are currently participating in the program, which has donated more than $4 million to these schools since the program’s launch in 2014.
In order to participate, customers must sign up for Box Tops For Education at boxtops4education.com; register their ShopRite Price Plus Card at shopriteformyschool.com; select the school they wish to support and then begin purchasing participating products with their card to send earnings to their school of choice.
ShopRite for My School is a year-round program and earnings never expire. The funds are paid to schools by check twice a year during the school year, and earnings received after the close for the spring payout are rolled over into the next year.
ShopRite, a banner of supermarket cooperative Wakefern Food Corp., includes about 280 independently owned and operated stores in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Delaware and Maryland.
