Giant Food to award over $31K to Delaware schools

Jun 19, 2014

Giant Food of Landover, Md., is presenting over $2 million to 2,055 local schools in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Delaware as a result of its 2013-14 A+ School Rewards program. A+ School Rewards provides a simple way for schools to earn funds to support school programs and enrichment activities every time a customer makes a purchase using their Giant card in their neighborhood Giant Food. Throughout Delaware, 57 schools will receive more than $31,800.

“The A+ School Rewards program allows us to give back, in a meaningful way, to the community that supports Giant,” said Gordon Reid, president, Giant Food of Landover, Md. “For a quarter century, Giant’s school rewards program has made a real impact in supporting critical educational and extracurricular programming in our community classrooms across Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia and Delaware. We are tremendously proud to continue this legacy.”

The A+ School Rewards program is linked to shoppers’ Giant cards, earning points for all in-store purchases. Giant customers can designate up to two schools to benefit from their purchases. Since 1989, Giant’s school rewards program has raised more than $90 million to help both public and private schools in the Mid-Atlantic region fulfill their academic and enrichment needs. In the past, funds raised by A+ School Rewards have helped purchase new computers, additional classroom technology, musical instruments, and athletic uniforms, and funded school aids, field trips, sports and after-school programs.

“I want to thank Giant for providing us with this opportunity to assist in supporting the instructional needs of Lord Baltimore Elementary,” said Ann Marie Logullo, principal, Lord Baltimore Elementary School. “We owe a huge thank you to all of our parents and families who contributed to this great donation and who always kept our students at the forefront of education. What an accomplishment!”

Delaware Cape Region schools receiving the largest awards from the 2013-14 A+ School Rewards program are: Lord Baltimore Elementary School, Ocean View, $5,900.97; Rehoboth Elementary School, Rehoboth Beach, $3,609.05; Millsboro Middle School, Millsboro, $1,901.66; Cape Henlopen High School, Lewes. $1,065.88; and Richard A.
