The easiest way to make money for McKenzie! Purchase gift cards (through the PTA) to your favorite grocery store and 5% of your gift card purchase is returned to the PTA. You spend nothing extra, but McKenzie wins big! Get more information on the program, including monthly subscriptions, here: http://mckenziepta.com/grocery-dollars/
