WAYS TO HELP TOPSAIL PRESBYTERIAN PRESCHOOL

 

The TPC preschool has signed up with Lowes Food Stores “Enroll in Cart to Class” and Harris Teeter’s “Together in Education” rewards programs.  Sign up for these worthwhile programs that cost you absolutely nothing except a little time and presenting your loyalty cards when you checkout.  You will need to re-link your card to TPC preschool annually, usually in August, with each food store.  We will remind you!  The funds received from these programs will be used to offset preschool expenses.

If you have either Lowes Foods Rewards Card or Harris Teeter VIC card and would like for a portion of your purchases to help the preschool, just link your cards to either or both rewards programs.

To sign up with Lowes Food Store use the following link:

https://rewards.lowesfoods.com/Account/Update?CartToClass=True

 

 

To sign up online for Harris Teeter use this link or you may give the following number to the cashier when you check out 3178.

http://www.harristeeter.com/community/together_in_education/link_to_your_school.aspx

          

Please remember that this only takes a little of your time and you to present your loyalty cards at checkout.

Together all of us can help our preschool. If you have questions you can contact Bob at financialsec@topsailpres.org.

Thank you for your continued support,

The Preschool Committee

*If you need help linking your card you can call Julie at the church office, 270-2312, or Gemma at the preschool, 270 – 2315, and they will assist you.
