Shop-for-Twain

Earn Money for Twain just by shopping!

Many grocery and online stores offer programs that support non-profit organizations, such as our own Twain PTA. By linking your rewards/savings card from each grocery store to Twain PTA, a percentage of your purchases will be donated to the PTA. Linking your rewards/savings card is simple. Just follow the directions listed below and see our school start earning! Ask family members or friends to link their cards to Twain PTA, even if they don’t live in Long Beach or Lakewood.
