We are very pleased to have the opportunity to award these funds which were obtained through our grocery card program. We currently offer reloadable cards through King Soopers and Safeway, which must be purchased through the Foundation.

If you would like to support your local school district and still need a card, please contact us! Every card comes pre-loaded with $10.00 on it and it only costs $10.00 - essentially free. For every $100.00 you load on the card, $5.00 is donated (by Safeway or KS) to the Foundation, which is then available for teacher grants. It's a win-win for everyone!

Safeway has also just announced that using a gift card at the gas pump is considered their "cash" price - this week it's a savings of 10 cents per gallon. Another reason to purchase one - save money and help our schools! Click here for more information on the reloadable gift cards

Thank you!
