A Covington family could win $1,000 and $500 for their charity of choice just by making a school-related payment online by Dec. 31. Newton County Schools currently use the online system MyPaymentsPlus through the "Season of Giving" promotion.
"The holidays are a time many of us come together as families, friends and communities," said Tina Bennett, vice president of online payment systems for Horizon Software International, the makers of MyPaymentsPlus. "We hope MyPaymentsPlus makes life a little easier for busy parents, and ‘Season of Giving' is one small way we can say thank you - and support a cause that's important to a member of our MyPaymentsPlus family."
All payments made to students' accounts - including those paid online, through the auto-pay function or via the MyPaymentsPlus mobile app - and that are remitted Nov. 19 through Dec. 31 are eligible. The winning family will be announced Jan. 2.
