It's that time again! We're gearing up for this year's Hannaford Helps Schools program and are excited to partner with you.


The 2022 program will run from March 13 through May 28.


Here at Hannaford, we work hard to have as many relevant participating items as possible so it's easy to support your local schools while shopping for the items you love. We've also made the redemption process even easier this year by launching an app and website where you can redeem your School Dollars. 


Since the program's inception, Hannaford has raised over $17 million to help local schools reach their fundraising goals. We look forward to partnering with you and another successful program!
