Changes to the Escrip Program

 In the past, most of the funds we received from the Escrip program came from your Safeway purchases.  This year Safeway has decided to pull out of the

program.  While this is disappointing for us, there are ways you can all help to mitigate this change.  There is still the online mall to contribute
by making all of your online purchases through the Escrip website to contribute to AHS.  

On this website,  and there is a quick link to the Escrip online mall or click on this link :
