Fundraising While Shopping

You can raise money for Lakeshore at no cost by doing what you’re doing already — buying groceries, clothes, household items, books, toys and more.

Between 2-6% of anything you buy from Amazon goes to Lakeshore when you go there using the url Click the button below or on the site sidebar and be sure to bookmark the link. Send it to friends and family!

Note: use this linknot Amazon Smile, which gives us smaller donations.

Register the credit and debit cards you shop with. Then, whenever you shop at participating stores either online or locally, a percentage is automatically donated back to Lakeshore.

Go to, create an account, designate Lakeshore PTA as a recipient school, and start shopping!

Lucky, SaveMart, and FoodMaxx

Lucky, SaveMart, and FoodMaxx stores donate up to 3% of purchases through their S.H.A.R.E.S. program. The program changed in April 2016 and is now powered by You no longer need a S.H.A.R.E.S. card, only an account with your phone number or Lucky You Rewards Card Number (this is not your S.H.A.R.E.S. number).

Just provide your phone number or card at checkout. Learn more at the eScrip site.

Box Tops

Look for the label on food packages when you shop. Tear off the label and return it to your teacher or the office to help Lakeshore get valuable school supplies.

$250,000 for a Questionnaire

We can get up to $250,000 if everyone fills out their free lunch questionnaire by the due date. That could pay for an upper level teacher to reduce class size from 33 to 25 students!

It’s available online for the 2016-17 school year. If you created an account in prior years, just log in and start the survey.

Fill it in even if your family doesn’t qualify and even if your child won’t be eating school lunch. We simply need the total headcount for demographic purposes to qualify for the grant.

Office Depot

5% of your purchase goes to Lakeshore!

Ask the person at the register to credit your purchase to Lakeshore. They will look up our account. If they can’t find it, simply provide our school ID which is 70014172.


Even easier than shopping is giving clothes away! Instead of tossing old clothes or donating to Goodwill, bring your used clothing to the school lobby and put it in the Schoola donation bin. We receive hundreds of dollars from the sales of used clothes at Schoola.
