Matthews, North Carolina-based Harris Teeter has donated $145,451 to participating schools through its Together in Education program.

Together in Education, Harris Teeter’s fundraising program for schools throughout its communities, offers schools three payouts per school year. This is the first of three payouts the company will make to schools during the 2022-23 school year and brings the total donated since the program’s inception in 1998 to more than $32.4 million.

Top earning schools:

  • $14, 870: Francis Scott Key Elementary School Middle School – Baltimore, Maryland;
  • $5,403: Grimsley Senior High – Choral Program – Greensboro, North Carolina;
  • $4,165: Community School of Davidson – Davidson, North Carolina;
  • $2,608: Ardrey Kell High School, PTO – Charlotte, North Carolina;
  • $1,978: Battlefield High School – Haymarket, Virginia;
  • $1,863: Hammond High School – Columbia, Maryland;
  • $1,818: Heritage Middle School – Wake Forest, North Carolina;
  • $1,559: Mountain Island Charter School – Mount Holly, North Carolina;
  • $1,349: Eagle Ridge Middle School PTA – Ashburn, Virginia; and
  • $849: Belle Hall Elementary School – Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

During this payout, 258 schools will receive a check from Harris Teeter.

Active participation by Together in Education schools and Harris Teeter customers is important to the success of the program, allowing schools to earn funds through shopper purchases. When shoppers purchase Harris Teeter brands, a percentage is donated to the school to which the shoppers’ VIC cards are linked. There are no limits to how much a school can earn.

The Together in Education school year runs annually from Aug. 1-May 31. To receive a check in the second payout period, schools must have accrued at least $25 during the school year. The second payout period runs December-February. 

Shoppers may link their VIC card through May 31 to help their local school earn funds for the 2022-23 school year.
