Fresh & Easy letting schools host fundraisers

DOWNEY - Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market this week kicked off registration for its 2012 Shop for Schools fundraising program.Now in its fifth year, the program allows parents and educators to raise money for their schools. Participating schools receive a $1 cash donation for every $20 receipt collected from any Fresh & Easy store from Sept. 12 through Dec. 31. The top two fundraising schools in California each receive a $5,000 bonus. All schools with students in kindergarten to 8th grade within a 3-mile radius of a Fresh & Easy store are eligible to participate. In addition to collecting receipts, schools can have their own "Shopping Night," a fundraising event where 5 percent of a local Fresh & Easy store's total sales, on a designated evening, are donated to the school. Schools can register for the program online at until Oct. 1.
