Please Support WMS When Shopping At Foodland During September!

To kokua, you must have a Foodland Maika'i Card (most of us do - no charge and it earns points and rewards year-round).  Ask the cashier to add a donation to your bill at checkout -- crediting it to Waimea Middle School (cashiers know the number.) The cashier will give you a printed receipt -- save it!  It will have your name, the school name as recipient of the donation, and the amount. This is your record for tax purposes so save and include when filing your taxes.  You might want to ask the cashier for 2 copies of the receipt - they are happy to do this and then give the copy to the school office OR make a copy of the receipt and give to the office to formally recognize your gift. Foodland gives the school the money they collect lump sum - they do not tell us who the donors we only know if you tell us.  The receipt you receive is the only record you will get from Foodland of the donation so it's really important to save it.  MAHALO for supporting our students!
