Falls Church, VA, 2016-Feb-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — Harris Teeter Store Director Jennifer Munoz will present 10 local schools each with a $5,000 check to reinforce the company’s commitment to education.

The schools receiving this donation are:

Columbia Elementary Annandale, Va.
Glasgow Middle School Alexandria, Va.
Queens of the Apostles Alexandria, Va.
Barrett Elementary School Arlington, Va.
Kenmore Middle School Arlington, Va.
Randolph Elementary School Arlington, Va.
Tuckahoe Elementary School Arlington, Va.
Washington-Lee High School Arlington, Va.
Belvedere Elementary School Falls Church, Va.
J.E.B Stuart High School Falls Church, Va.

This donation is made possible partially by the Virginia Lottery and is in addition to the dollars a school receives from Harris Teeter through its active participation in the company’s Together in Education program. Together in Education is the company’s fund raising program to benefit schools (public or private- preschool through 12th grade) throughout its local communities.

The Virginia Lottery provides incentive payments to retailers who sell winning tickets in scratch-off games. Harris Teeter has chosen to donate its incentive awards back to local schools.  This most recent $50,000 incentive award comes from a winning ticket which was sold at the Barcroft Plaza store in January.

“Harris Teeter is proud to reinforce its commitment to education by donating its incentive payment to these schools,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter.

“We are always excited by this opportunity as it allows us to continue to show our commitment to the community and schools by donating the money back to one of our Together in Education partners,” added Robinson.
