Do you know of a non-profit group that could use a little extra money? They may be able to benefit from the Community Partners program at Albertson's.

Members and supporters of a registered group receive special cards. When they buy groceries the checker scans the card and the total is recorded for the group. At the end of every quarter Albertson's sends the group a check. The amount depends on the recorded total but could be as much as $1,800 a quarter.

Ginger Robertson with Trinity Episcopal Day School, "We are now ordering 3 Dell computers for our classrooms with children 3 to 5 years old."

Trinity Day School is one of nearly 600 groups registered in the program in Tulsa.

Last year, Albertson's wrote those groups checks totaling more than $200,000.
