The Woolworths ‘Earn & Learn’ program is back in 2017 and I’m so excited to get involved.
Sponsored by Woolworths
For those of you who don’t know, the Woolworths ‘Earn & Learn’ program supports schools and early learning centres all over Australia to receive a-maaazing educational resources in learning areas such as sport, mathematics, arts, science and technology.
It’s hard to believe that such a generous program exists and how easy it is for you and your community to get involved. Let me tell you more.
Our family do the bulk of our shopping at Woolworths supermarkets. For my husband Matt and I, we really like the quality of the fresh produce, the variety and value we get to help make our week run smoothly.
Our weekly supermarket shopping experience has become a whole lot more exciting for us, especially for our girls, because currently shoppers can earn 1 sticker for every $10 they spend in a Woolworths supermarket or online.. These stickers can be handed in at the store or to a participating school or early learning centre and have them redeemed for points that will then go towards valuable learning equipment. Amazing, right?
You might be interested to know that last year’s program saw 16,000 educational facilities get involved and over 450,000 individual educational items were delivered as a result. I don’t know about you, but I find that totally mind blowing. Just imagine the enormous benefit this has on children learning and having a greater opportunity to explore more of what may be of interest to them.
How to get involved
It’s so incredibly easy to get involved and start supporting your local community or make a direct contribution to your child’s school or early learning centre.
Once you’ve paid for your items at the cashier you will receive your stickers, which you can simply then pop in one of the Earn & Learn postal boxes located at the front of any Woolworths store. Local schools will most likely have their box labelled, but if you have no connection to any school you can randomly decide who you donate your stickers to or pop a sticker in each!
If your child’s school or early learning centre is participating in the ‘Earn & Learn’ program then they might also have a special box at a central location. You can simply drop your stickers into the box or add them to an ‘Earn & Learn’ sticker sheet and hand them in that way.
The Woolworths Earn & Learn program provides all communities with a simple way of contributing to local schools and early learning centres. All stickers collected from purchases made at a Woolworths store and online can make a huge impact and provide much needed and enjoyed education resources in sport, mathematics, science, arts and technology.
