We are so excited to once again be hosting Shopkeepers for Schools: An Extra Credit Event. It’s a fun and easy way to support your favorite school. From February 15 to 22, Red Barn Mercantile and Penny Post will be donating 10 percent of sales to your favorite local Alexandria school.
How does it work? Easy! Simply mention the school you want to support at checkout or in the notes section on our websites. Tell all your friends and family to do their shopping with us as well!
This is a great opportunity to treat yourself to something wonderful or buy an early gift for mom, dad, or your favorite upcoming grad all while helping the schools. Honestly, it’s a win for you, a win for us, and most importantly, a win for the kids!
To make it an even bigger win, we are adding additional incentives. First, 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. Second, we will be making a matching donation of the winning school’s totals to The Scholarship Fund for Alexandria to support those high school seniors needing extra support to go on to higher education. So, it’s really a win/win/win/win!
We're so excited to be able to do this again this year and hope you'll help us spread the word and support our schools!
