Upcoming Events- May

May 5- Milk Builds Strong Schools Assembly at Northgate Elementary

For the past several years DFW and Jacksons Food Stores have partnered in support of the Milk Builds Strong Schools Program, a six week program where Jacksons donates five cents per every one gallon of milk sold to schools in a city where a Jacksons is located. These funds go toward the purchase of an Apple iPad Learning Lab for one randomly selected elementary school in each of the participating states. This year Northgate Elementary will receive the Learning Lab on May 5. This year DFW and Darigold equally split the cost of promotion as the program spread beyond Washington to five additional states.
