Giant Food donates funds to schools through A+ School Rewards program

LANDOVER, Md. — Giant Food is donating nearly $2 million to schools in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and the District of Columbia as part of its 2010-2011 A+ School Rewards program, the Royal Ahold banner said Wednesday.

The program, which has operated for 22 years, allows customers to support school programs every time they use their Giant card at a Giant Food store.

“Since 1989, Giant has awarded more than $83 million to schools across the Mid-Atlantic region through A+,” Giant-Landover public and community relations manager Jamie Miller said. “We’re very proud to support more than 2,200 local schools and give back to the communities we’re so privileged to serve.”
