More than 50 representatives from 24 local schools and nonprofit organizations Thursday at the Grass Valley store on McKnight Way to show their appreciation to SPD. Many groups presented Ben Painter with signs, banners, cards and gifts to demonstrate their appreciation.
In 2012, SPD contributed $204,266.64 to these and other organizations through the SPD Community Card Program. Once registered, every time a shopper presents the SPD Community Card at checkout, their organization benefits. Administered by eScrip, the program allows local schools, and nonprofit organizations to raise much needed funds. For more information, or to sign up to participate, see a cashier at the Grass Valley or Nevada City SPD or visit www.escrip.com.
