• Tesco’s US division, Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Markets, announced that it has relaunched its Shop for Schools fundraising program. According to the company,, “Registered schools are eligible to receive a $1 cash donation for every $20 spent at a Fresh & Easy store. At the end of the program, Fresh & Easy will award the top fundraising school in each state with a $5,000 bonus.”

And, Fresh & easy said that it has made several enhancements to the program, “by increasing the length of this year’s program, providing more marketing materials for parents and teachers to use, and introducing a fundraising shopping night for registered schools. On these special shopping nights, the brainchild of a Las Vegas store employee, Fresh & Easy will donate five percent of a store’s sales from 4 pm to 8 pm to local schools.”
