The money raised from the receipts will be split among the district's PTAs — the high school (7-12) and three elementary schools. A shopper can designate a particular La Cañada public-school's name on the receipt before putting it in the container.

Another view on financial reforms
In last week's letters to the editor Lauren Oakes wrote a rebuttal to a previous letter. In commenting on the "financial reforms" legislation, she neglected to mention that some of the most egregious activities of the banks have been outlawed by this new legislation. One is changing interest rates at will for existing credit card balances. No other business is allowed to change prices after the purchase and this single item brings some sanity to credit card interest charges.
The comment about reading fine print terms of a credit card or checking account agreement (and understanding it) to shop for a 'better deal' is nearly impossible. Just walk into any bank and ask them for a copy of their credit card terms. See if they even have it.
