BI-LO store No. 5246 in Goose Creek, South Carolina invited local families to join in on a back-to-school math adventure on Aug. 6. About 50 children participated and received a free BI-LO branded reusable bag full of school supplies.

The math night adventure was advertised to the community through bag stuffers at the store and in partnership with Goose Creek Primary School. Associates registered families for the night, and parents were invited to enter a raffle for a $150 BI-LO gift card and to sign up their bonus card for Hometown Educational Rewards, earning their child’s school points at the same time they earn fuelperks!

The childrenreceived a math sheet based on the grade they will enter in the new school year, and they immediately hit store aisles to solve the math problems on their worksheets. Upon returning the completed math sheet, each child received a bag full of school supplies including a spiral notebook, composition notebook, scissors, glue sticks, erasers, pencils, crayons and markers. The children were then invited to the bakery area to have juice and cookie refreshments and to partake in free face painting.

“It was a great night at our store, watching all the kids scattered throughout the store solving math problems and learning a little more about grocery shopping,” said Service Area Manager Christina Rhames. “My grandchildren even came to partake in the event and I loved seeing the smiles on their faces.”

Upon leaving, one child said, “This is the best time I have ever had at BI-LO!”
