Family Fare Cash for Class is happening this week. South is participating in the D&W Fresh Market and Family Fare Cash for Class Program to earn money for our school. Purchases you make between October 19-October 25 with your ‘yes’ card will automatically be credited to our school account. The program is tied directly to your yes Rewards card. You can choose up to two (2) schools to link your yes card. Go to Cash for Class website to link your card to the schools of your choice. You only have to link your yes card once and you will not have to remember to tell the cashier during the event weeks – once you link your card – it will automatically calculate the donation for the school chosen. In April 2015, schools will receive checks based on the percentage of all members’ purchases. Already a yes member but don’t have an on-line account set up? Just visit the yes website at Cash for Class , click on ‘First-Time to Site?’ and follow the steps to complete your on-line account registration. During the registration process, you will be able to link your school code (s).
