Sharing stories from our Price Chopper Family to yours.

It’s that time of year again-our Tools for Schools program is back!

Price Chopper has committed over $500,000 to this effort with the goal of supporting schools in the communities we serve.  The portion of what your school earns depends on the participation of parents in the program. 

HOW TOOLS FOR SCHOOLS WORKS:

1. Register your AdvantEdge card and designate a school at the Guest Services desk at your Price Chopper, at your school, or online.

2. The program beings on Sunday, July 29, 2012 and runs until Saturday, March 30, 2013.

3. All purchases using your AdvantEdge card will be automatically credited to your selected school.

4. Every dollar spent at Price Chopper earns you one point. Purchase brands in our brochure and receive double points!

Earn double points for your school on Brands you buy every day! All purchases using your AdvantEdge Card will be automatically credited to your selected school.  Your points are combined with points of others who have chosen to support your school (now that’s team work!). 

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Registration for this program is simple!  If you enrolled last year, no need to enroll! New to the program? Register your AdvantEdge Card and designate a school at the guest services desk at your Price Chopper, at your school, or online.

TOOLS FOR SCHOOLS SUPPLY DRIVE

Our tools for schools supply drive is back, too! 7/29 through 9/15, customers can purchase school supplies to help students and schools in need. Purchased supplies can be dropped into a specially designed cart at the front of each store.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Do I have to sign up again if I signed up in previous years?
If you enrolled last year, no need to enroll. Visit pricechopper.com to confirm enrollment or to change your school.
 
Do I earn points on everything that I buy?
Yes. Everything you buy will contribute points toward tape value your school can redeem for equipment. Earn double points on brands in this brochure.
 
How much can my school earn?
Price Chopper has committed over $500,000 to this effort with the goal of supporting schools in the communities we serve. The portion of what your school earns depends on the participation of parents in the program.
 
Where do I find my school code?
The Guest Service Desk at Price Chopper has a book containing all the school codes, or visit pricechopper.com
 
How do my points increase my school’s share of the over $500,000?
You earn points every time you use your AdvantEdge Card. Your points are combined with the points of others who have also chosen to support your school. The total is compared to the totals amassed by other schools to calculate what percentage of the over $500,000 your school will earn.
 
Must I have children in school to participate?
No. In fact, all shoppers are encouraged to help local schools get needed equipment through our Tools for Schools program. Support your community and enroll on behalf of your neighborhood school whether or not you have children attending school.
 
Can I check how many points I have earned?
Yes. Check your receipt for your Tools for Schools point balance.
 
My school isn’t listed. What should I do?
Contact school officials and tell them about the program. If school administration supports the effort, your school is far more likely to earn needed equipment. School administrators can contact a Tools for Schools representative at (800) 352-4658.
 
What is the school program coordinator’s role?
Each school is asked to have a school program coordinator, whose role is to promote the program by distributing information in school, communicating the program goals and entering AdvantEdge Card numbers provided by parents into the program.
