~School Store They give money to schools for doing online shopping through their site. By visiting their site you can link to more than 400 stores like Target, Walmart, Kohls, Best Buy, Barnes & Noble, etc., then shop like you normally do at those retailers and they will give a percent of your purchase amount to our school!! You can even pay online with HOPE certificates if you normally do that! Registration is optional, but if you do register you can send emails to family and friends so their purchases can benefit our school too, your kids can win prizes with certain purchases, and you have the chance to win $100 for each student you register!! If you choose not to register you can visit www.schoolstore.com and find our school through the button on the top right, then click on the Merchants button to see all the retailers you can shop through. This program will run through the entire school year, but with the holiday shopping season upon us it's a great way to send a little extra money to our school by doing what you normally do! If you have any questions contact Jen List @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
