Monday, June 13, 2016, Harris Teeter Store Director Oscar Alatorre will present 5 local schools each with a $2,000 check to reinforce the company’s commitment to education.

The schools receiving this donation are:

  • Winter Park Model Elementary School
  • Roland Grise Middle School
  • Hoggard High School PTSO
  • College Park Elementary School
  • Rachel Freeman Elementary School

This donation is made possible partially by the North Carolina Education 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 North Carolina Lottery provides incentive payments to retailers who sell winning tickets in various lottery games. Harris Teeter has chosen to donate its incentive awards back to local schools.  The College Road Harris Teeter recently sold a winning ticket, resulting in a $10,000 incentive award.

“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 our Together in Education partners,” added Robinson.
