McWhorter's donates more than $134,000 to schools

McWhorter's Stationery stores broke a previous year's record by giving back more than $134,000 to 664 participating local schools through the 1996 Back-To-School fund-raiser, store officials announced. In 1995, McWhorters provided $118,000 to 656 schools.

The fund-raiser operated between July 22 and Sept. 30 when parents, students or school faculty shopped at any 22 Bay Area McWhorter's locations. McWhorter's donated 10 percent of the purchase back to a participating school.

Purchases included school supplies, gifts, office supplies or any other merchandise McWhorter's carried. Vouchers were distributed by participating schools and were available at all 22 locations.

In past years, the money has helped purchase needed school supplies, and computers. Proceeds also have funded extra-curricular and sports programs.

McWhorter's officials said teachers spend a good portion of their salary on classroom supplies.

To help alleviate these out-of-pocket costs, McWhorter's also offered an Educator Credit Card which gives teachers, school administrators, and staff 10 percent off their monthly statements.
