Residents can raise money for their local schools while getting their grocery shopping done.
Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market is now registering for its 2011 Shop for Schools fundraising program, which donated $90,000 to Orange County schools last year.
Schools can earn $1 for every $20 receipt collected between Sept. 15 through Dec. 31 at any Fresh & Easy store. The school that raises the most money in California also gets a $5,000 bonus.
The program is open to any K-8 school within a three-mile radius of any Fresh & Easy store.
There is one store in Costa Mesa at 1835 Newport Blvd.
Schools must sign up before Sept. 15. To register, go to http://www.freshandeasy.com/shopforschools.
