Smith’s Food and Drug distributed about $49,000 of annual proceeds from it’s “Earn and Learn” program to 20 community organizations and schools Wednesday.
The top five earners were Aspen Elementary School, $4,630.96; Barranca Elementary School, $5,809.82; Mountain Elementary School, $5,689.19; Los Alamos Middle School, $5,193.30 and Los Alamos High School, $5,604.16.
Superintendent of School Dr. Gene Schmidt was at the ceremony to show his support for the schools as well as the community.
“This is one more example of how a business in our community reinvests,” said Schmidt. “When we see the checks go out, they go out all across the community. He added this is also about Los Alamos residents supporting its school system.
“This wouldn’t be possible if people didn’t support their local businesses,” he said. “Even as we thank Smith’s for its contributions our schools, we thank the community for supporting local businesses.”
Residents helped raise money for the recipients by linking their “Fresh Values” cards to the school or organization of their choice.
