Many stores will give Northside two percent of the  purchases you make at those stores with credit, debit or (preferred) store cards. It's simple!  You buy...and Northside receives!  All you have to do is go on line and follow the steps described below. The web site is secure. There is no risk.  You will incur no additional cost.  If you buy groceries, you can help us!

Here's how much it can mean to Northside.  If 100 families signed up to support Northside, and each family spent about $600 a month at their participating store,  Northside's (2%) share of the total purchases each year would be about $14,000.  We could get an awful lot of help...without any additional cost on your part!  Help that would allow us to continue to do good work for the community.
