Harris Teeter Together in Education
Let's support our community schools!  By linking your Harris Teeter VIC cardto your school of choice, you can help schools earn extra funds for educational needs by simply doing the shopping you are already doing!  You can do this even if you do not have children attending!
Each August residents just need to go to Harris Teeter's website and link their VIC card to these schools.  They can choose one of the three schools or select all of them.  A percentage of the dollars spent on Harris Teeter brand products will go to these schools.  They will receive checks three times during the year.
How long does this program run? August 1 - May 31
The contribution schedule looks like this:

Realtor Greg Macaluso, Costello Real Estate and Investments, CW Resident
Greg’s background consists of spending over 15 years as a Compliance Officer working for Smith Barney in NY, then relocating to Charlotte working for LPL Financial, and most recently TIAA-CREF. Having such an understanding for a client’s overall financial well-being and having spent a career assisting clients in making sound investment choices, Greg decided to transition his skill set to Costello Real Estate & Investments which allowed him to work with Charlotte area homeowners and investors to acquire and sell property within the region.
One of life’s most important financial decisions should be assisted by someone who understands the significance of that decision. Let Greg put his knowledge, experience, and dedication to work for you.
"My philosophy is simple: clients come first. I pledge to be in constant communication with you, keeping you fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. My belief is this: if you’re not left with an amazing experience, I haven’t done my job. Success is not measured through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of my clients."
