Ways to make money for our school!!

Let's keep up the good work by shopping at Amazon using this link:

We earned almost $800 in Amazon donations just since October when parents started at this link. That's the easiest way to earn free money for our school. (The Amazon Smile program gives us a smaller donation percentage so while we appreciate your help, it's better to use the above link by creating a short cut to it or following the link from fowhe.org.)


Every time you shop at Ralphs you could be earning a contribution for our school that doesn't cost you a dime. Each fall, Ralphs requires that you re-enroll your cards to select your community contribution.

To re-enroll your Ralphs card:

  • Go to ralphs.com
  • Click "My Account"
  • At the bottom of the screen, click "Enroll" under Community Contributions. Our organization ID is 82163. See more instructions at Ralphs website. You can also enroll your card for the first time if you're new to the school.

Also, register your VONS or Pavilions Cards!

Use NPO # 500000347


No more saving receipts to make donations through the Fresh & Easy Shop for Schools program. You can now register your Fresh & Easy Friends card and get up to a 5% donation on each purchase.
