Charlotte, N.C. — Harris Teeter Together in Education (TIE) on Monday donated more than $385,000 to participating TIE schools during the second of three payouts of the 2012/2013 school year, raising the program total to $18.7 million since 1998.
Since that time Harris Teeter has registered schools or school programs for a TIE code on harristeeter.com, and customers then have the capability to link their VIC card to up to five of those TIE codes anytime between August and May of every school year. Once the VIC card is linked, every time a customer purchases Harris Teeter brands or fills a prescription at a Harris Teeter pharmacy, Harris Teeter donates money back to the school to which the customer’s VIC card is linked.
Harris Teeter Together in Education distributes money to TIE schools and programs three times per school year; the first payout was in December, the second payout was in March, and the final payout of the 2012/2013 school year will be in June. A total of 768 schools earned a check, averaging $502 per school.
