Apples For The Students
Greerâ€™s is committed to giving back to the communities we serve.
The well-being of all of our customers and associates and their families is an important part of our Greerâ€™s Team Vision, To bring added joy, well-being, and value to peopleâ€™s lives! This is Greerâ€™s seventh year to participate in the Presidential Award-Winning Program â€“ Apples for the Students. Continuing to offer Apples for the Students was an easy decision to make! The Apples Program enables us to not only bring â€œjoyâ€ to the students and teachers receiving awards, but to put the â€œwell-being and valueâ€ portions of our vision into action in each and every community we serve.
For over 20 years, Apples for the Students has worked with grocery stores to provide more than $250 million dollars worth of FREE computers, equipment, programs, and educational tools to local schools. The Greer Family and our family of Associates are all proud to be a part of the Apples for the Students program through Associated Wholesale Grocers. Providing FREE educational equipment and supplies to participating schools in Alabama, Mississippi and Florida through the Apples for the Students Program is an important part of Greerâ€™s community involvement.
Education, next to the health of our children, is the number one concern of parents today. We, at Greerâ€™s, care about the education and well-being of our children and youth and the dedicated teachers and administrators. At Greerâ€™s, we are parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles, and we are concerned about educating our children and youth. Many of our part-time associates are high school and college students working to fund their educational goals. We are concerned that budgets continue to be cut forcing many teachers and administrators out of their chosen profession.
We are also concerned when we hear that fund-raising continues to decline due to the economy, extra-curricular programs are still being eliminated, and teachers are purchasing even more supplies out of their own pockets.
Unlike traditional fund-raisers, Apples for the Students is easy and fun! Since many of your studentsâ€™ families currently shop at our stores, your school already has a strong base of support for this program. Best of all, everyone in your community can take part. Itâ€™s not limited to your schoolâ€™s students, administration and faculty. In fact, the more outside interest and enthusiasm generated, the greater the benefits to your school. We know of no better way to serve the community than by enhancing the educational and developmental environment of our children. We look forward to your schoolâ€™s success in this yearâ€™s program. Good Luck! Activate and/or register your school using the School ID Number that can be found on the inside cover of your School Coordinator Guide. After completing your registration a User Name and Password will be generated for you. Make sure to keep a record of both for each subsequent visit to the site.
Our program for this school year ended March 19. Please stay tuned for the 2016-2017 school year.
