Earn & Learn program supporting 10 local schools has begun!

North Phoenix consumers will once again have an opportunity to give back to the school of their choice just by shopping and dining out. The Shops at Norterra’s annual Earn & Learn program, now in its sixth year, runs August 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019 and benefits 10 local public and charter schools.

For every dollar spent at any of Norterra’s shops, restaurants, service-providers, and Harkins Norterra Theater, the selected school earns 10 points. Double points are offered for a limited time at select businesses, and bonus points can be earned through interaction on social media and by attending events at The Shops at Norterra. At the conclusion of the program, the participating schools each receive a grant ranging from $500 to $2,500 depending on the total points earned. Consumers simply go online to www.shopandlog.com/norterra to submit their receipts.

“Like the box-tops program, Earn and Learn is an easy way for consumers to support their favorite school every time they shop,” says Jill Jones, The Shops at Norterra’s marketing director. “If you’re going to eat out, see a movie, go shopping, or get your nails done, why not have the money you spend help your local school at the same time?”

Since 2013, The Shops at Norterra has contributed more than $50,000 to dozens of schools in the North Phoenix and surrounding areas through the Earn & Learn program. Another $12,500 will be awarded in 2019 at the conclusion of the program.
