Please help support Indian Land schools

-A A +A

Some of you may have seen the table set up at the Sun City Harris Teeter on a recent Saturday asking shoppers to link their VIC cards for school support.
What many people did not realize was that this was not for an Indian Land school.
I was disgusted to watch these women trick people into signing up by letting them think that they were there to support our local schools. These women were taking advantage of the fact that many people in Indian Land are still confused by the difference between Fort Mill and Indian Land.
Thanks to Indian Land Elementary School PTA President Jen Kiel, they were asked to leave – but not before getting many members of our community to unknowingly switch their VIC card link to a Fort Mill school.
If you were there and signed up with them thinking you were supporting an Indian Land school, all you have to do is let your cashier know next time you shop there and they can switch you back. If you have not linked your card yet, please let your cashier know next time you shop there and they will link you.
Our schools benefit by getting a portion of what you spend donated to them. Thank you to everyone who supports our schools.
