Contest winners can get snacks and supplies for classrooms
| Oct 11, 2010
Del Monte Fresh Produce, North America, Inc. has announced that it is launching a program to help support kindergarten through 12th-grade public school teachers across North and Central America with cash to purchase school supplies and fresh fruit in the “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” campaign. One hundred prizes totaling $1,000 each will be awarded to teachers who get the most votes in the “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” online contest.
The “Teacher Monday” program was designed to take some of the burden off teachers, many of whom pay for school supplies out of their own pockets. Winning teachers will receive $750 in cash to purchase school supplies and $250 in Del Monte fresh fruit coupons for classroom snacks and to use in fruit educational activities. The “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” program also will link winning U.S. classrooms with a school in Guatemala or Costa Rica. The 50 selected Central American schools will also receive $1,000 each for school supplies. To enter or for more information, visit Del Monte's website.
