PONY EXPRESS ELEMENTARY is part of the 2019-2020 Shopping to Educate Program.

You can help PONY EXPRESS ELEMENTARY raise money for items needed but unfortunately not budgeted for. Program runs August 1, 2019 – May 1, 2020.

Shopping at Lake Crest Village or Loehmanns Plaza? ANY STORE RECEIPT from anyone of the two shopping centers goes toward our school yearlong fundraiser “Shopping to Educate,” that includes store receipts from Starbucks, Nugget, Burger King, Marshalls, Rite Aid just to name a few stores.  

Nugget Markets Scrip Program

Post

With this program, up to 4% of your purchases at Nugget Markets will be donated back to our school.  To obtain a card, fill out the request form, or leave a note in the PTA mailbox.  Register your card online, and present it to the cashier each time you shop at Nugget Markets. Multiple cards can be registered under one family member so monthly purchases earn a greater percentage.

Shoparoo with your Smartphone

Post

Shoparoo is a free app for smartphones that allows everyone to raise money for Pony!  Simply use the app to snap pictures of your grocery receipts to earn Roo Points, based on the purchase amount.  (500 Roo Points = $1 cash donation from Shoparoo)  You can also take pictures of your non-grocery receipts for entries into Shoparoo’s $1,000 and $15,000 sweepstakes.
