Harris Teeter announced that it is partnering with the Virginia Lottery to $50,000 to ten local schools, including two schools in the Falls Church-area of Fairfax County. Jennifer Munoz, Harris Teeter store director, presented each of the schools with a $5,000 check on Tuesday, Feb. 23.
Belvedere Elementary School and J.E.B Stuart High School were the two Falls Church schools who received donations from Harris Teeter. The Virginia Lottery provides incentive payments to retailers who sell winning tickets in scratch-off games.
Harris Teeter has chosen to donate its incentive awards back to local schools. This most recent $50,000 incentive award comes from a winning ticket which was sold at the Barcroft Plaza store, located at 6351 Columbia Pike, Falls Church, in January.
