Granville residents can earn free supplies, musical instruments and playground equipment for their school simply by shopping.
The Granville Central School District has teamed up with Price Chopper and the Tools for Schools program.
Every time customers shop at any Price Chopper with their AdvantEdge Card and mention their school’s code, points will be added to the district’s account at no extra cost.
Most items earn points, excluding alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, lottery tickets, gift cards, stamps, Tickets to go, tax and bottle deposits. Double points can be earned on Price Chopper, PICS, TopCare, Simply Done, Full Circle, ValuTime and Paws items.
To accrue points, customers must first register at www2.pricechopper.com/toolsforschools/Msingle.shtml. According to Price Chopper’s website, if a shopper enrolled last year, there is no need to re-enroll – but customers should confirm their enrollment to be sure, and change their school if they- wish.
Each of Granville’s schools has its own code. Mary J. Tanner’s code is 16346. Granville Elementary School’s is 16326, and Granville High School’s is 16327.
The program, which began July 24, runs through March 25. Points earned can be found on your receipt.
Price Chopper sponsors the Tools for Schools program each year to offer educational, technological and extracurricular equipment to local schools.
Price Chopper has committed more than $500,000 to this program with the goal of supporting schools in the communities it serves, the company’s website states. What each school earns depends on the amount of points accrued by a district’s shoppers. Points are combined with the points of others who have also chosen to support each school.
The Hartford Central School and Whitehall Central School districts participate in the program as well. Hartford’s code is 16331. Whitehall’s high school code is 16378. To earn points for Whitehall Elementary School, use 16377.
