In order to receive a check, schools must have accrued at least $250 by the end of the second payout period.
Since 1998, Harris Teeter Together in Education has donated over $20 million to area schools. In honor of this accomplishment and to say “thank you” to participants, Harris Teeter launched its TIE $100,000 Giveaway in January. During the Giveaway, Harris Teeter is donating a total of $10,000 each week for 10 weeks to randomly selected winners and the Together in Education schools to which their VIC cards are linked.
