It would be nice if Safeway, Walmart, and Lucky's do the same for our schools.

I agree with Diva. Ranch 99 is clearly putting out a positive message with this one.

To 'Diva' - you said: "It would be nice if Safeway, Walmart, and Lucky's do the same for our schools."
Safeway does. It's called 'scrip' and it provides 4% back to the school/organization year round, all the time. There's also e-scrip. Contact your local school. You can participate even if you don't have a child/student. Ask a friend with a student. Raley's, Gene's and others participate as well.

Safeway and Walmart help local schools in other ways. Safeway is part of the Escrip program ( If you register your Safeway club card you can specify an organziation that a percentage of your shopping dollars go to. The amonts and products vary, but do add up and non profits can make quite a bit of money from these programs. Walmart Gift cards are available through a program called Shop With Scrip. Signing up for escrip is very easy by visiting the website. You will want to check with your local school regarding shop with scrip and other such programs if you'd like to help. Take care
