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 :

If you are new to AHS and have not signed up yet, please click here to join:

under Schools or nonprofits, hit Edit in the upper right corner and select Alameda High School PTSA.  You can also download a "forget me not" app for
savings and earnings.  Amazon, Dell, Nordstrom, Barnes and Noble, Land's End, Target, and many other travel sites are included.  Please take a few
minutes to sign up and next time you buy online or are planning for a trip, think "GO HORNETS"!
