"In addition to shopping at Safeway, it's more important now than ever to spread the word about raising funds from other means," Kim Guidice wrote in the newsletter,
She urged students and their parents to register in store and shop at the new Gene's Fine Foods supermarket, which has a community eScrip card with no cap to earnings. Shoppers also can sign on for the new Raley's Something Extra Program, which also has no earnings cap. Another Pleasanton supermarket, Lucky, has a Lucky S.H.A.R.E.S. community giving card that provides eScrip earnings for Amador.
"We can rebuild our eScrip and electronic funds engine" through these other programs, Guidice said.
eScrip earnings can also be obtained at Tri-Valley restaurants, including Fontina, Red Smoke Grill, Extreme Pita, Mama Rosa's, Little Home Thai, Zepher's Livermore, 101 Bangkok, Hana Japan, Black Angus, and Romano's Macaroni Grill.
Registered credit and debit cards at stores like Nordstrom, JC Penney, Sephora, Forever 21, drugstore.com, and Big-O Tire also offer eScrip revenue for Amador, Guidice said. Even online purchases made from Macy's, Apple, Nordstrom, Expedia, Amazon, Hotels.com, and Home Depot participate in the eScrip rewards program.
To participate in the eScrip program, Guidice said go to: www.escrip.com, click on "My eScrip" and enter your username and password, click on "Register credit and debit cards" and register and update. Also, be sure to enter your email address so you can receive important updates.
