The new Together in Education school year starts on August 1, 2015! Link now to a local school and they will start earning on August 1 based on your Harris Teeter (HT) brand purchases.

Start the year off right with these three key pieces to the Together in Education program:

  • SHOP for HT brands and a percentage of your purchase helps your local school. Participating brands include Harris Teeter, HT Traders, Farmers Market and Harris Teeter Organics; as well as, the HT pharmacy.

Don’t forget ALL VIC cards will need to be RELINKED each school year. Contact parents and community members for support, it is easy and linking your VIC card does not cost you ANYTHING!

Jon May Realty


For any TLS teacher, staff member, or student family that uses me to buy or sell their home, I will rebate them 20% of the brokers fee I earn, which is normally 3% of the home sale price. On top of that I will make a donation of $250 per sale to TLS from my remaining fee.

Kroger Community Rewards®

Enroll using this link: https://www.kroger.com/account/communityrewards/enroll

Kroger has designated $5 million per year to donate to charitable organizations through this program. Loyalty card shoppers sign up online and select TLS as their designated organization.

Kroger then tracks all the card holder’s purchases (exclusions below) with every dollar counting as a vote for TLS. At the end of each quarter, Kroger totals up dollars spent by enrolled customers and distributes money to all enrolled organizations proportionately. Kroger limits a participating organization’s earned rewards to a maximum of $50,000 quarterly with a participating household’s earned rewards to a maximum of $300 quarterly. The minimum quarterly reward payout is $25 per organization. If an organization earns less than $25 in a quarter, Kroger will hold the amount until the next quarter that the reward exceeds $25 or until the end of the program term, whichever comes first. Shoppers don’t sacrifice any in-store discounts or gas points they earn on their Kroger card; the charitable component is a separate, extra feature.

Family of Stores Gift Cards, Green Dot Prepaid Reloadable Products, MoneyPaks, 1-2-3 Rewards Reloadable Visa PrePaid Debit Card, ReCharge Cards, American Express Variable Load Gift Cards, Visa Variable Load Gift Cards, MasterCard Variable Load Gift Cards, Bottle Deposits, Lottery and Promotional tickets, Money Orders, Western Union, Fuel, Pharmacy and Sales Tax are excluded from eligible purchases.
