Bartell's launches card for local charitable donations
SEATTLE — Bartell Drugs is introducing a new way for customers to donate to local schools and nonprofit organizations, the regional retail pharmacy chain said Thursday.
Bartell's announced the launch of the "B" Caring Card program. Customers who enroll in the program can present the card for scanning whenever they shop at a Bartell's store, and 4% of the purchase amount will be contributed to qualifying organizations, such as schools, churches, athletic groups and youth groups. Customers can designate up to three schools or nonprofit organizations to receive benefits. The company also is working with eScrip, a company that establishes relationships between commerce and communities.
"We are so excited to have Bartell's coming on the eScrip program," said Amy Perez, eScrip coordinator for Lake Wilderness Elementary School, in the Seattle suburb of Maple Valley, Wash. "There is a Bartell's close to our school, and we are excited for the great addition they will make to our eScrip program."
