TPSF Major Saver Cards on Sale Feb. 18 - 25




The Topeka Public Schools Foundation (TPSF) 2013 “Major Saver” discount cards will go on sale Monday, Feb. 18. The public will have an opportunity to purchase the discount card for $10 from a Topeka Public Schools (TPS) student/family or directly from the school or online.

Major Saver cards include discounts on purchases at 15 local restaurants.  The discounts are valid one time at each location.  These businesses support TPS by sponsoring this important program. 

Students from TPS elementary and middle schools will be selling the cards or they can be purchased online. The online feature allows sales anywhere in the nation. For example, a relative living in California can purchase a card online and credit it to a particular student/school. Buyers simply log on to www.majorsaver.com to select his/her card. All cards purchased online will be credited to the student selected and then mailed directly to the customer.
   
Last year, the Major Saver program generated more than $58,000 in revenues for the Topeka Public Schools Foundation and Topeka Public Schools. The Foundation helps support students and teachers in programs and services.  Since the Foundation’s inception, it has given educational support to elementary, middle and high schools for educational programs and has awarded thousands of dollars in scholarships to graduating seniors.  Each participating school receives a portion of funds raised.

The dates that you may purchase Major Saver Cards are February 18 – 25. For more information, contact TPSF Executive Director, Pamela Johnson Betts, 295-3000 or pjohnso@topeka.k12.ks.us.
