Parents who shop at Kroger, Martin's, or Food Lion can earn money for MLWGS just by linking the grocery shopping card to the school. Last year Maggie Walker received more than $2,700 from Martin's alone.
To link to Kroger - Take the school barcode to Kroger and give it to the cashier with Kroger Plus Card. Each time the Kroger Plus Card is used, it earns points for the school, which are redeemed to purchase educational equipment. Cards must be re-linked every year.
To link to Martin's - On the web go to richmond.martinsfoods.com/aplus and look on the bottom right where it says in a red box, "Register." Type in the first three letters of the last name and the 11 digit code that is on the center of the Martin's Bonuscard. The prompt will ask for a school code - 03112. The card must be re-linked every year.
To link to Food Lion - Register the MVP Card by going to Foodlion.com. Click on "Community Outreach" in blue, and then click on, "MVP Rewards" from the list on the left. Next click on, "Register My MVP Card." (Scroll down to see the registration spot which is next to a big green circle). Then enter the twelve digits from the MVP Card. Finally, enter the MLWGS code, 104517. Cards DO NOT have to be re-linked every year.
