Ways and Means Committee
Chairperson: Bhavani Koneru
The Ways and Means Committee wishes to extend greetings to all of the 2014-2015 Westfield families and friends.
The PTSA participates in a number of "silent" fundraisers - meaning you don't have to sell anything to participate. Please read about them here on our website and enroll in the programs you use. Remember to re-Link your program cards where needed.
Harris Teeter Together In Education Program
It's time to get all of the parents and community members to RE-LINK their VIC cards. Our school code to link is 8134. This program is easy and part of normal daily living without additional investments. When customers purchase select Harris Teeter Brand products using their VIC card, Harris Teeter contributes a percentage of those purchase dollars to the schools of their choice. So ALL parents and teachers if you don't already have your VIC card please register online or in the store (Herndon, Chantilly, Aldie, Reston, Leesburg or Gainesville are closest locations). Once you have your VIC card, you can designate Westfield by calling 1-800-432-6111, give the cashier your our VIC Card and the school's TIE number, online or by sending me an email firstname.lastname@example.org with names and VIC card number and I will do a mass update. This one time sign up process must take place each school year. The school of your choice must be re-linked to your VIC card each year, beginning August 1.
There are several ways to link your VIC card:
- At the register in stores
- At the Customer Service desk in stores
- On web site - www.harristeeter.com
- Phone - Call 1-800-432-6111
Ways and Means coordinator can also link parent's cards using the Mass Link feature so if you don't have time to re-link yourself make sure to bring your VIC card to the Bulldog BBQ or send email and provide Last Name, VIC card Number first 11 digits only example 40000000001 and/or Phone Number example 571-555-5555 (must match name provided).
- Last Name (Must match name on file VIC Card Number)

You use it just as you would any search engine, and it's powered by Yahoo!, so you get great results. Go to www.goodsearch.com and be sure to enter Westfield High School PTSA, Chantilly VA as the charity you want to support. Just 500 of us searching four times a day will raise about $7300 in a year without anyone spending a dime! And, be sure to spread the word to family and friends who want to support our high school.
A percentage of EVERY purchase you make through SchoolCash.com will be donated to the school, PTA, or educational organization of your choice. http://www.schoolcash.com/
