  2. If you shop at KROGER, FARM FRESH, OFFICE MAX/DEPOT, and/or HARRIS TEETER, please make sure your Harris Teeter VIP card is linked to #2751 St. Matthew’s School, SMS is selected for your Kroger card, present your FARM FRESH 1-2-3-4 for the Community tag each time you check out, and at Office Max/Depot ask for the “5% Back to School” to be credited to SMS. Please tell relatives about these programs and ask them to designate SMS.
  3. Clip Box Tops for Education & Labels for Education! – Collect Labels for Education and clip Box Tops. Spread the word to family and friends about saving Box Tops and Labels for your student(s) to bring in. There are collection containers in the hall by the Teacher’s Lounge.

  4. Coke Rewards – Collect and turn in your Coke and Coke products bottle caps and 12 or 24 pack carton ends with the codes on them. Ask your family, friends, and co-workers about collecting these for you. The school will enter the codes to collect points that will be redeemed for cash to purchase playground, PE, and after school games and equipment.
  5. Are You A Match? Many businesses will do a company match for employees who donate money (Annual Appeal) or volunteer their time to non-profit organizations. St. Matthew’s School is a non-profit entity. Please check with your employer to see if they have a matching program. If they do, please let us know what we need to do to help you participate in that program.
