Shop & Earn
SHOP & EARN PROGRAMS
Earn $$ for Woods Charter just by doing your everyday shopping!
Woods Charter PTSA raises money each year to support various programs and learning opportunities for students and teachers at Woods Charter School. The money earned through the monthly Grocery & Gas Card program and other shopping programs allows us to raise funds without having to hold other smaller fundraising sales during the school year. We typically earn over $15,000 through shopping programs - This is the single biggest fundraiser for the school!
If each Woods Family (average 300 families) bought just $100 worth of grocery or gas cards each month - we would earn as much as $30,000 for Woods during the 10-month school year! Imagine how those funds can be put to use at the school!

Remember - your family and friends can participate too - sign them up!
Monthly Grocery & Gas Cards:
Each month we place an order for prepaid Grocery & Gas cards from Lowes Foods, Food Lion, BP, Exxon and Shell Gas. You can sign up for the monthly program by completing an order online. You will get the full-value paid for your cards (you buy $200 worth of cards, you get $200 worth of groceries or gas) and the school earns money because the stores allow us to buy the cards at a discount. The school earns 15% from Woods Charter, 10% from Lowes Foods and 5% from Food Lion. The gas cards from BP or Shell Oil earn 10% for the school and Cruizers Exxon/Mobil cards earn 4%.
Weaver Street Market: Weaver Street Market locations in Southern Village, Carrboro and Hillsborough. Weaver Street will donate 5% of your purchases to WCS through their "School Scrip" program. You will need to go to the Customer Service Desk and get a School Scrip Card and assign it to our school number (#118). The card is refillable and reusable - if you already have a card, you can link it to our number right at the register.
Shop AMAZON.COM through Fund Your PTA!
You can earn 1% of your Amazon.com & 6% of your Groupon purchases by shopping through a special webpage sponsored by Fund Your PTA!
