This event is super simple. From February 9 to 16, Red Barn Mercantile, Penny Post, The Hive, and The Shoe Hive will be donating 10 percent of your sale to your favorite local Alexandria school.
How does it work? Easy. Using your school’s newsletter and take-home folders (assuming those are still a thing), tell everyone at your school to shop that week and mention the school at checkout or in the notes section on our websites. Tell all your friends and family to do their shopping with us as well. Treat yourself to something wonderful or buy a gift for your valentine. Then, ring the school bell (at the stores, not at the school, of course) to show your school pride. Honestly, it’s a win for you, a win for us, and most importantly, a win for the kids!
The school that raises the most money will receive an additional 10 percent! Be it public or private, pre-k to high school, your school can be on the leaderboard. We'll also be making a matching donation of the winning school’s totals to The Scholarship Fund of Alexandria to support high school seniors who need extra help going on to higher education.
We're excited to be able to do this again this year and hope you'll help us spread the word and support our schools!
