Class of ’16 graduate, Melvin Matute, was awarded the “Dream in Action” scholarship from the Urban League of the Upstate and is now a freshman at Clemson University. As we praise him and get excited for his future, let’s take into account the obstacles he’s overcome. Watch the video below to hear his story:
We want to share a great new way to earn money for Legacy! It is called ShopARoo, and it is a free iPhone and Android app that turns pictures of your shopping receipts into donations to the school. Just take a moment to snap a quick picture of your receipt and voila, you’ve made an instant cash donation to the school.
Snap pictures of your receipts from any store, big or small, that sells grocery items to earn Roo Points (cash donations) for Legacy. Whether you’re shopping at a supercenter, dollar store, or local convenience store – it doesn’t matter where you shop or what items you buy – Shoparoo will make a cash donation for every receipt! Submit up to 20 grocery receipts within a rolling 7 day period.
Snap pictures of your receipts from any restaurant or other retailer (that doesn’t sell grocery items) to earn entries for your school into Shoparoo’s $1,000 monthly sweepstakes and $15,000 yearly sweepstakes! Each receipt counts as an entry into both monthly and yearly sweepstakes, so spread the word – the more receipts you submit, the greater Legacy’s chance is of winning. Submit up to 50 non-grocery receipts within a rolling 7 day period.
Just Download the app from your phone’s app store an use the code plef9376 to start earning points today!!
Also, Shoparoo will donate 150 extra Roo Points for every friend you refer to Shoparoo who submits a qualifying receipt. Whether you prefer email, text message, word of mouth, a Facebook post, tweet, or smoke signal, just use your personal referral code (in the Shoparoo app) to invite your friends and family to join you in hassle-free school fundraising!
