Shop at stores that reward TJ’s PTSA

Harris Teeter

Harris Teeter Together in Education — Register your VIC card with TJ code 5534. Five percent. % of your Harris Teeter private label purchases will be contributed by Harris Teeter directly to TJ. Plus, we can qualify for a $500-$2,000 bonus depending upon how much we earn.

Recycle and Earn Money for TJ

Deposit your empty inkjet and laser toner cartridges, small electronics (GPS devices, digital cameras, laptops, iPods, iPads) and all types of cell phones and smart phones in the special drop boxes located by the front office (Aud Lob) and the copy room (Mr. McCormick’s old office) to earn money for TJ while encouraging environmental responsibility and conservation. A recycling company pays us for each qualifying item and properly disposes of those they can’t use. This is a year-round effort, so please keep them coming even during the summer.

Please put ink cartridges in a plastic bag to prevent leakage.

Shop with eScrip

Every time you shop with a card registered with eScrip, you can earn money for TJ. All you need to do is register a card and use it when you shop in person or online at participating merchants. You can make your dollars go even further for TJ if you sign up and use an eScrip VISA card.
