Everyone’s connected to a school in some way. Maybe you work there, or have family enrolled in one, or you have a great school in your community. No matter the connection, schools and the education they provide are important, and anything that can help stretch a school’s budget allows them to provide the best education possible. Simply make a purchase of qualifying school supplies, provide your school's ID at checkout (in store and online) and your designated school will receive 5% back in credits for FREE supplies! It's a small act that can make a huge difference.
