SCARBOROUGH, Maine — Hannaford Supermarkets has announced the return of its Hannaford Helps Schools program for a 20th season. Now, through Nov. 30, shoppers can help local schools meet fundraising goals by purchasing specially marked items in Hannaford stores.

“Educators in our local schools are already going above and beyond, and we’re proud that Hannaford Helps Schools can provide those educators additional support in expanding the opportunities available to students,” said Ericka Dodge, spokesperson for Hannaford.

Each store features more than 1,500 eligible products on its shelves. For every four participating products purchased, a shopper will receive three “School Dollars” that they can then donate in-store to the school of their choice.

Participating schools include: Athol Community Elementary School, Athol High School, Athol Royalston Middle School, Baldwinville Elementary School, Barre City Elementary and Middle School, Barre Town Middle and Elementary School, Fisher Hill School and Dexter Park School, Erving Elementary School, Mahar Regional School, Memorial School, Murdock High & Middle schools, Narragansett Regional High School, Petersham Center School, Phillipston Memorial School, Ruggles Lane School, Spaulding High, St. Monica-St. Michael School, Swift River School, The Village School, Toy Town Elementary, Warwick Community School.

Additionally, Hannaford will award $1,000 to the school that raises the most funds in each community.

Money raised will support needs designated by individual schools, including things like new computers, musical instruments, sports gear, field trips or playground equipment.

In its 20 years, Hannaford Helps Schools has raised more than $12 million for schools in New England and New York.
