Irvington Boosters earns support

Irvington High school Boosters announced on Thursday, Feb. 21, that they are one of the top 250 earning groups nationally in the recent "Safeway 10% Back to Schools" program. As one of the top 250 groups, Safeway has contributed an additional $1,000 for a grand total of $3057.16.

Through this six week Back to Schools program, the Safeway family of stores has contributed over 3 million to support the education of youth across the nation.

Irvington High School Boosters plans to use their eScrip funds to purchase equipment to help pay for tournament fees, and provide scholarships and awards. These funds make it possible for this parent volunteer group to support all the athletic programs at Irvington High School.

"We appreciate all that Safeway does and for their ongoing commitment to education and out local schools," said Jackie Cain, President of the Irvington High School Boosters Club. "Because of Safeway's participation in the eScrip program, and our commitment to sign up all our school families with eScrip, we have a very successful booster program here at Irvington. In addition, many of our families now shop at Safeway because of this wonderful program."

"Safeway 10% Back to Schools" program allowed Irvington Boosters to earn 10 percent of items purchased by school supporters from participating manufacturers this past summer. Top Safeway manufacturers contributing to Irvington Boosters through the program included Kraft Foods, Pepsi, Kellogg's, General Mills, Sara Lee, and Unilever.
