Smith Farm, Winston-Salem’s newest elementary school located just off Linville Road near Kernersville, is a beautiful school with a great faculty as well as wonderful students and parents. But one thing it is lacking is a playground, since playgrounds are not included with new school funding.
Fundraising efforts are underway to give the children a place to play outside and everyone can help without spending a dime. In addition to collecting both Box Tops for Education and Labels for Education, Smith Farm is participating in rewards programs though local stores such as Food Lion, Harris Teeter and Target. Linking your grocery store cards or your Target REDcard to Smith Farm will allow those stores to donate a percentage of your purchases to the school. Food Lion, for example, will let you link your MVP card to Smith Farm (school code: 220021) and anytime you purchase Food Lion brand products the school will be able to order free school equipment. The same is true with your Harris Teeter VIC card (school code: 2029). Since Harris Teeter printed their school list before Smith Farm was completed, linking VIC cards is easier to do online or by the school code.
Box Tops, Labels for Education, or any other donations can be sent to: Smith Farm Elementary, Attn: PTA, 4250 Johnny Knoll Lane, Winston-Salem, NC 27107.
