You can help Creekside by participating in our PTA grocery store rewards programs!

Help the PTA earn money and supplies for Creekside by using our grocery rewards programs. The money from these programs is used to fund student activities and classroom needs.

It’s easy!  Here is how to start using each one:

Farm Fresh:
Scan your school Key Tag every time you shop or buy gas at any Farm Fresh. If you need a tag, please let us know!!! You may scan up to 5 different school tags with each transaction. This tag will not link to your existing Farm Fresh account, so you must scan the actual key chain tag.

Link your Kroger Plus Card by searching for Creekside or entering the NPO number 80020. You would need to register your account and then add this number to the Community Rewards section.

Harris Teeter:
Link your VIC card with our school code – 7844. You can do this by googling the Harris Teeter TIE program and locating the “link” tab. You use the phone number associated with your account or account number to link the school code your account. It’s very easy and fast!
