Fuquay-Varina, NC, 2016-Feb-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Wednesday, March 2, 2016, Harris Teeter Store Director John Taylor 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:

  • Middle Creek Elementary School in Apex, N.C.
  • Middle Creek High School in Apex, N.C.
  • Vance Elementary School in Raleigh, N.C.
  • West Lake Elementary School in Apex, N.C.
  • West Lake Middle School PTA in Apex, N.C.

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.  In January 2016, the Kings Grant Harris Teeter sold a $2 million winning Powerball 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 one of our Together in Education partners,” added Robinson.
