Publix key fobs available
Everyone knows that Kroger Cares and SCRIP card programs are great ways to help MTCS. But there is one more way to help. MTCS has partnered with Publix to earn a percentage of all money spent shopping at any Publix grocery store. Key fobs were sent home with elementary students, and parents of junior high and high school students can pick up their key fobs in the Business Office during school hours. Each time you shop, show the key fob to the cashier, and a percentage of your total will be paid back to MTCS. NO TEP CREDIT WILL BE CALCULATED ON THESE AMOUNTS, but this is such an easy thing to do to help MTCS. So be sure to start using your key fob today.

For those wishing to attend, they will sponsor a meal and time of praise at the Life Center at North Boulevard at 7:30 p.m., before heading to the theatre for the 10:00 p.m. showing.
