King Soopers has partnered with GWHS to raise funds for this year’s After Prom festivities. We have reloadable gift cards that you can use for all of your shopping at King Soopers and Loaf and Jug stores, including fuel! When you use the card at checkout, GWHS earns 5% of everything you spend on groceries, fuel, and any other purchases you make. It adds up quickly without you spending any more money than you already would be. After Prom is an important part of Prom for our students, and the money will be used to help make sure this year’s celebration is fun and memorable.
If you would like a card, please email Leslie Tseng at email@example.com for both the card and easy instructions on how to use it. Once you have your card, please remember to reload and use it as much as you can. Don’t forget cards for relatives, including those kids who are purchasing gas. The GW community is raising more money this year than ever before – let’s keep it going!
