Nugget Markets Scrip Program

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.
