A Tennessee pharmacy is on a mission to help its local cash-strapped schools.

Volunteer Pharmacy, which has stores in Maryville and Knoxville, Tennessee, will be giving away $100,000 to schools over a 1-year period, according to WBIR.com.

Four schools will receive $25,000 cash and then decide how to use the money. Tennessee residents who visit Volunteer Pharmacy will be able to choose which schools receive the money, according to WBIR.com.

Customers of Volunteer Pharmacy can vote at the company’s 2 locations. One vote may be cast without buying anything at the store, but for those who pick up prescriptions at the pharmacy, votes will be multiplied by the number they have filled.

The owners, who will announce the winners in March, June, September, and December 2015, told WBIR.com that they knew the local schools were struggling to keep up with expenses, so it made sense to help out their community members.

“A lot of them are hurting for money,” Chad and Camilla Frost, owners of Volunteer Pharmacy, told WBIR.com. “A lot of them need simple things, headphones, just small technology things that they don’t have the money to go out and buy, and as parents and people in the community wanting to help out, this is a great way for us to do that.”
