Smart & Final, the grocery warehouse store with locations throughout California, has been selected as the first-ever grocery partner for the California State PTA and its more than 730,000 members and 3,400 local PTAs.
Smart & Final has produced an exclusive program to fit the needs of PTA community building and fundraising events. This partnership provides special coupons and deals just for PTAs to purchase food and service items. California State PTA’s Member Perks Program and online newsletters will feature these special offers. In addition, California State PTA will receive 2 percent of all purchases made through the program, and local PTAs will be invited to apply for community grants.
“Smart & Final’s sponsorship offers our local leaders and members savings opportunities for their event and community needs, and we’re happy to welcome Smart & Final to the California State PTA family,” says Celia Jaffe, California State PTA president. “We’re thrilled to receive support from a business with extensive roots in California.”
The partnership with the California State PTA is part of the Los Angeles-based retailer’s ongoing efforts to focus on food, community and people. Smart & Final offers groceries and household essentials in both bulk and individual sizes without a membership fee.
“Smart & Final is proud to offer our dedicated support to the California State PTA, which does so much to benefit children and families throughout our shared home state of California,” says Matt Reeve, Smart & Final’s group VP, sales and merchandising. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to provide the fundraising tools to achieve local PTA fiscal goals while educating their members about the value, assortment and convenience we bring to their organization.”
