Support Highlands Every Day!

Nancy Riley
The holiday season is here and we are so thankful that we have so many wonderful families in our Highlands community. As we continue through the season, we wanted to inform you of some ways that you can support Highlands through your everyday activities.
Publix Super Markets has a great program that will enable our school to make money every time you shop at Publix. It’s simple: You only need to present your Highlands Publix Partners card (Don’t have one? stop by the office to pick one up!) when you shop and Publix will handle everything else. For every eligible $37,500 our supporters spend at Publix, $250 will be given to our school at the quarter’s end. If we haven’t reached the $37,500 mark by the end of a quarter, our balance will carry over to the next quarter. So, be sure to carry your card with you and remember:
• Let the cashier know you have a Publix Partners card at the beginning of your transaction.
• Your card is good at participating Publix stores in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South
Carolina, and Tennessee.
Have you heard about Planet Fundraiser? It is a simple way to support Highlands with your purchases at local restaurants and stores. Participation is simple. Download the Planet Fundraiser app to your phone. Select Highlands as your benefitting school. Then, just snap a picture of your receipt from a participating restaurant or store and a percentage of your purchase will go to Highlands. Some of the participating local businesses are Piggly Wiggly, Chick-fil-A, Milo’s, Dinner, Taco Mama, La Paz, Otey’s Tavern, Shipt, Mudtown, Eat and Drink, Local Taco, Over Easy, Johnny Rockets, Jack Brown’s and Babalu. 
You can also support Highlands by using Amazon Smile. AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Highlands every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same prices, selection and shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to Highlands. Use this link to set Highlands as your benefitting charitable organization: www.smile.amazon.com/ch/63-0388769  
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
