Kroger Plus Card customers throughout the Atlanta Division – which includes Georgia, South Carolina, Northern Alabama and Eastern Tennessee – will soon be able to contribute to charitable organizations of their choice with each in-store transaction.
On Sept. 1, Atlanta Division Kroger stores will launch its Kroger Community Rewards® program, a $750,000 fundraising initiative aimed at supporting deserving schools and non-profits. Kroger Plus Card holders can enroll online at Kroger- CommunityRewards.com to earn funds for their favorite charity. Every time an enrolled customer shops using a Kroger Plus Card, he/she helps a charity of choice raise money.
“Kroger has and always will be a supporter of non-profits and schools in the areas we serve. Our Community Rewards Program is just another way for us to provide customers with a way to give back to causes that are near and dear to them,” says Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division.
Local schools, churches and other nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organizations apply and are approved by Kroger to be listed on KrogerCommunityRewards. com. Kroger customers can then visit the site, sign up with their Plus Cards and select a local organization they wish to support (limited to one charity per household). Once enrolled, customers will earn rewards for their chosen organization every time they shop and use their Plus Cards.
All participants must re-enroll each year to continue earning rewards for their chosen organization.
“The Community Rewards database has hundreds of deserving groups to which customers can contribute,” says Jenkins. “We are proud to provide another outlet for monetary giving, and we look forward to the impact that will be made.”
If a non-profit organization or school is not enrolled, they can visit krogercommunityrewards.com for complete details on the application process.
