SS. Simon and Jude School, West Chester, received a generous donation of $4,950 from Giant Food Stores’ A+ School Rewards program on Thursday, May 23.

The school was the top recipient from the Westtown Giant location, and one of the top recipients in the area.

The A+ School Rewards program allows local schools to earn cash for scholarships, computers, sports equipment, smart boards, field trips, or any of their other educational needs. There is no limit to what schools can do with their A+ School Rewards, which are accrued with each purchase a customer makes using his or her BonusCard.

Since the program launched in 2005, more than $13 million has been donated to local schools through participating markets.
