Westchester High School tennis teams presented a certificate of appreciation to Mike Romano — Westchester Vons store manager — for a Vons contribution of more than $4,000 to the tennis teams.

Coaches Jarrid Baldogo and Kandy Chain said they will use the funds to purchase equipment, practice uniforms, ball machines, racquet stringers, and other supplies not funded by the Los Angeles Unified School District.

The $4,000 contribution comes from a recent Vons “10% Back to Schools” promotion and eScrip funding program that allowed customers to register their grocery, debit, and credit cards to raise funds for a specific school, group, or organization.

Participating merchants contributed a percentage of purchases made on the card to customers’ designated choices.
