Lee County- Your grocery list can do a lot more right now than fill up your refrigerator.

When you shop at any Winn Dixie and use the store's Rewards card, a school of your choice will get points in the Winn Dixie School Rewards Program.

You just have to sign up and every time you shop, the school earns more points that will be redeemed for educational supplies and equipment.

"If you've got two children, one going to high school one going to elementary school, you can sign up for both schools and we'll divide the proceeds between both schools," said Dennis Gaskins, the store manager of the Winn Dixie in Lee County.

The school in the area that earns the most points will receive a free computer. The program runs through March 2005.
