Schools in the Oklahoma City Metro have received over $200,000 in school supplies over the past five years, made possible by Buy For Less Grocery Stores through the Tapes for Education Program.
Christy Kalhoun was the winner chosen at random for this year’s Tapes for Education contest. As the winner, she received a $500 Buy For Less gift card and an iPod Shuffle for her son, Trey Miller. The contest was created as an encouragement for shoppers to feel that while supporting their school by saving register tapes, they also have a chance at being rewarded themselves.
Universal Promotions created by Tapes for Education Program. To participate, customers turn their Buy For Less receipts into a local school of their choice. Once collected, the receipts are added up, and that amount is donated in supplies and equipment back to the local schools.
“Contributing to education for students in the Metro area is very important to us here at Buy for Less,” said Denise Hawkins, Buy For Less marking director. “We believe this program is a great way to give back and we’re very impressed with the entire program’s success.”
Buy For Less participates in this program because of the easy process for customers. It is a simple way to save at Buy For Less while also giving back to the community.
