Fresh & Easy readies for school fundraiser

August 28, 2012

Residents can again help Newport-Mesa Unified schools just by doing their regular grocery shopping.

Last year, customers raised more than $8,000 through Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market's Shop for Schools fundraiser.

The grocer this year again plans to donate $1 for every $20 spent.

The program is open to elementary and middle schools within a three-mile radius of a Fresh & Easy store. Costa Mesa has two locations: 3151 Harbor Blvd. and 1835 Newport Blvd.

Residents must register at by Oct. 1.

The two California schools that raise the most money between Sept. 12 and Dec. 31 will also win a $5,000 bonus.
