Nugget Grocery Store Supports OUR Students!!!

TODAY we begin the Nugget Market Fundraising Program. This program will run at least through the end of April. If funds are still being contributed steadily at the end of April we will have the opportunity to continue through the end of May. For those of you that haven't been to our local Nugget Market, it is located on the Browns Valley Parkway, just one block North of Interstate 80.

Please spread the word to your friends, neighbors, coworkers, and family members to look for the S.O.S. logo on signs at the checkout counters. Those signs will let people know how they can contribute when they checkout.

The fun part is how easy it is to contribute. All anyone needs to do is let their checker know how much they wish to donate to S.O.S. and that amount will be added to their bill. They can then pay their bill in whatever fashion (scrip, cash,credit card etc.) they choose. Their receipt will show the amount of the contribution for charitable donation/tax deduction purposes.

I personally want to thank Lee Majors for initiating this effort! Kate Stille and Jennifer Dowden at Nuggets Corporate office for everything they have done. Without Kate's enthusiastic support and Jennifer's follow-up on this project it never would have gotten off the ground in time.


  1. I wanted to remind everyone out there you can e-mail me if you would like a Nugget Scrip Card. These cards are rechargeable, where you can use all forms of payment including ATM, checks, credit cards and cash to load money on the card. The great thing is Nugget Market makes a 3% donation to Vacaville Unified every time you load funds on the card. Load $100 on the card, $3 goes to the school. Assuming a family spends $400 a month on groceries at Nugget, you would be contributing $12 a month using your scrip card! All you need to do is remember to keep using and recharging your Nugget Scrip Card every time you shop at Nugget. It is very easy to use and there is no cost to you. If you are interested in one of these cards, please e-mail Jim Wasielewski at

  2. THANKS Jim!! This is a very exciting time and every little bit helps! Thank you for your support
