Help our Preschool Earn Free Money!!!
Hidenwood Presbyterian Preschool takes advantage of fundraising opportunities that are offered through local businesses and products we use frequently. There is no additional cost to you and it helps our school tremendously. Anyone can participate in these programs, so please be sure to ask all of your family members and friends to participate. It’s so incredible that even those across the country, through e-mail, or Facebook can help!
HARRIS TEETER: Through Harris Teeter’s “Together in Education” program, a portion of your spending will go to our school each time you shop. Just sign up for your FREE VIC card and have the cashier link it to HP Preschool. VIC cards can also be linked online at www.harristeeter.com; click on “Together in Education,” select “Link to your school,” and fill out the information. The program runs from August to June, so be sure to link your card to HP Preschool at the beginning of each school year. Even if you have registered before, you must re-register each year. Something you may want to consider is that a VIC card can be linked to more than one school.
CAMPBELL’S LABELS FOR EDUCATION: Collect the labels from Campbell’s products (Soups, Prego, Swanson, Goldfish crackers, etc.). Also, collect Pepperidge Farm products and lids from V8 Splash beverages. Please send any of these with your child to the preschool. The products’ UPCs are assigned a point value; points are redeemed for merchandise for our school.
CAPRI SUN: Save the empty pouches; flatten them and put 10 in a zip-loc sandwich bag; deliver them to the collection box outside of the preschool office.
NEW! SHOPAROO: The Preschool participates in a hassle-free fundraiser called Shoparoo. Nationwide, more than 7,000 schools are already fundraising through Shoparoo and we see it as great opportunity for us to make a difference this year. All you need to do is take pictures of your grocery receipts with the Shoparoo app made for your smart- phone. It doesn’t matter where you shop or what you buy—every receipt submitted results in a donation to our school! Simply download the free app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store by searching “shoparoo” and then select our school as your chosen cause. Since there is no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo, be sure to invite your friends and neighbors to join in—every receipt counts! Thank you for your support.
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION: Although preschools are not eligible to participate in the Box Tops for Education program, any box tops turned into us will be given to a local, public elementary school. Cut out the box top from General Mills, Betty Crocker, and Ziploc products and send them with your child to the preschool. Take care not to cut off the expiration date.
FOOD LION & FARM FRESH: are not presently offering an incentive program for preschools.
These are the fundraisers with which we are starting our year; however, if we hear of any others (perhaps from you?), we will definitely consider them and let you know of other ways you can contribute easily to your child’s education!
If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to call the school and speak to our director, 757-595-8351. She can also put you in touch with someone on the fundraising committee. Thank you for helping Hidenwood Presbyterian Preschool supply our students with additional materials and equipment for the best learning environment possible!!
