Shop & Dine for Alameda
The PTA has set-up and manages many programs that allow you to easily support our school with your everyday shopping.
Fred Meyer Rewards Card
If you have Fred Meyer Rewards card, you may link it our school and help raise funds for Alameda PTA at no additional cost to you. You still keep your personal Fred Meyer Rewards. Fred Meyer will also donate to your charity of choice. To get started:
- Go to www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards,
- Create an online account (if you don’t have one already) connected to your Fred Meyer Rewards Card, and
- Follow the directions to link your account to Alameda School PTA.
Every time you shop at Fred Meyer and use your Rewards card, Alameda PTA will automatically get a contribution from Fred Meyer, at no additional cost to you.
Shop Amazon & Support Alameda
The Alameda PTA has set up several ways for you to easily support our school when you shop Amazon. You can use our "Amazon Affiliate" link and you can set up Alameda as the non-profit beneficiary of your purchases on AmazonSmile.com. Below are more details.
Shop Amazon & Support Alameda
The Alameda PTA has been established as an Amazon Affiliate. When you shop Amazon by clicking this link (or the button to the left) your purchases can earn a commission for our PTA. For some products the commission is as much as 10%! If you don't want to have to return to this site each time you're ready to shop on Amazon, we suggest you add our Affiliate link as a bookmark in your browser.
Every time you purchase something off Amazon using the “smile” page, Alameda Elementary PTA gets a 0.5% contribution, a cost to Amazon merchants, not you. Please take a few minutes to sign up using the instructions below and be a proud supporter of the Alameda Elementary PTA today.
- Go to www.smile.amazon.com
- Type in “Alameda Elem PTA” to select your organization
- Click search
- Click Select for Alameda Elem PTA.

Every time you would like to shop Amazon, navigate to www.smile.amazon.com and Alameda will get a percentage of purchase as a donation. NOTE: It can be hard to remember to go to the smile.amazon webpage to order off Amazon. If you bookmark smile.amazon it will help you remember. People who use the Chrome browser can install a plugin that will automatically redirect all amazon.com pages to smile.amazon.com.
Restaurant Nights & Other Community Partners
The PTA partners with local businesses such as Fire & Stone Restaurant, Pizzicato, Laughing Planet and The Arrangement on Fremont, for fundraising events during which the partner donates a percentage of sales to the Alameda PTA. This year we're excited to offer several opportunities for you to eat out and shop locally while supporting your PTA at the same time.
This winter and spring we have arranged for:
- Dough for Dollars at Pizzicato on February 6.
- Dine out for Alameda at Laughing Planet on May 8.
Check back here from time to time or subscribe to NewsNotes to keep up-to-date on opportunities to dine out and support Alameda!
Alameda Spirit Gear
Every year Alameda families have an opportunity to order merchandise featuring the Alameda logo (t-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, tote bags, etc.). Parent volunteers help with the ordering process and with the distribution of orders.
Stay tuned for more details about the 2018-2019 gear sale!
Scrip is a dollar for dollar fundraiser which benefits Alameda at no cost to you! You purchase gift cards for groceries, movie tickets, coffee, and so much more from us, and we buy the gift cards at a discount (4% to 30%, depending on merchant) and keep the difference. All scrip proceeds go directly to Alameda Elementary.
