If you shop at the Petaluma Market or at Oliver’s Markets, these grocers will donate 2.5% of your purchase amount to the McKinley PTA if you have the Store’s Community Card. It is a painless way to support the school and it does not cost you extra. To do so, follow these steps:
Step 1: Next time you are in the checkout line, ask for a community card and application. The form takes less than 60 seconds to complete. Just list your name, phone number, zip code, and e-mail and choose the McKinley PTA as the charitable group you want donations to go to.
Step 2: Go to eScrip.com and set up your account. You will enter the number that is on your store’s community card and list the McKinley PTA ( group # 500825908) as your preferred charity. Also list your reference phone number. You may also choose to register a credit card or debit card with them if you want the deduction to happen automatically.
Step 3: Next time you checkout, tell the cashier you have a community card and they will scan it. Optionally, they can also apply it if you give them your phone number or the credit or debit card you registered. The 2.5 % contribution will show in your receipt.
That’s it! Thank you and thank these local businesses for their community support.
