School program

PLATTSBURGH — More than 700 New York schools will receive $149,514 in donations through a Hannaford Supermarkets program that helps local schools purchase playground equipment, sports gear, musical instruments and other items.

In Plattsburgh, Hannaford Helps Schools contributed $3,841 to support local education. The top recipient was Beekmantown High School earning $1,192, which included a $1,000 bonus for being the top earning school.

Overall, the Hannaford Helps Schools programs generated $604,954 in donations from customers and from the company — funds that will benefit more than 2,700 schools. The program is in its 13th year and has raised $8.1 million for schools in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York and Massachusetts.

“Hannaford is committed to helping communities and supporting local education across our service area,” said Eric Blom, Hannaford spokesman. “We are proud that Hannaford Helps Schools can provide local educators with some extra money at a time when so many school budgets are stretched tight.”

Hannaford Helps Schools generated donations to local K-12 schools when customers purchased eligible products between Sept. 9 and Dec. 1, 2012. This year’s program involved more than 60 brand partners and more than 700 products, including products from Procter & Gamble, Clorox, Kraft, Unilever, General Mills, Heinz, McCain and many others.
