City Market Community Rewards Program. If you shop at City Market and use your Value Card, our school’s PTO automatically gets a donation from City Market. First you must sign up to register your card and link it to Pomona. Also, you must sign up anew every calendar year. Luckily, it only takes a minute. Just visit www.citymarketcommunityrewards.com and select Pomona as your charity of choice. It's an easy way to raise money for our school!

Thank you for supporting our PTO which in turn supports the Pomona students and their needs.
