Save Mart Supermarkets announced that it has partnered with eScrip to manage its S.H.A.R.E.S. charitable giving program. The new Shares powered by eScrip program continues the company’s legacy of giving up to 3% of shoppers’ eligible purchases to local, community-based organizations. The advantage for FoodMaxx, Lucky and Save Mart shoppers is that the program is now electronic. Shoppers will be able to see online how much they’re donating, and organizations can track what they’re getting. The more their supporters shop, the bigger the quarterly check the group receives! All shoppers, schools, churches and 501(c)3 organizations will be required to sign up on www.eScrip.com/shares in order to give or receive donations. Even those who were under the old S.H.A.R.E.S. program will have to re-register. In fact, the S.H.A.R.E.S. cards that customers were required to swipe at checkout to direct donations will no longer work as of April 2016. Customers will still be able to earn points for themselves under the Save Smart or Lucky You rewards program, which can then be redeemed for free merchandise and dollars-off coupons.
