For the third year in a row, Sunvalley Shopping Center     is hosting "Sunvalley Gives Back for Back to School".  Back to school shoppers who make their purchases between August 1 and August 31 are encouraged to bring their back to school shopping receipts to the Sunvalley Customer Service Desk, where each dollar spent is a point earned for the school of their choice. 
The top performing schools with the most points at the end of the promotion will receive a check from Sunvalley Shopping Center and its participating sponsors.
Sunvalley and its sponsors have awarded thousands of dollars over the last two years, and want to give away more this year.
