KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS PROGRAM
Many of our members have been participating in the Kroger Community Rewards Program and earning money for our Motor City Blend Chorus.
This rewards program is an easy way to earn money for the chorus without any extra out-of-pocket expense to the participants since we all purchase food on a regular basis. If you shop at Kroger in Michigan and have a Kroger Plus Card, showing that card at the check-out is all you have to do.
Kroger will pay up to $500,000 on a quarterly basis to participating non-profit organizations based on their percentage of spending as it relates to the total spending of all participating Kroger Community Rewards organizations. So, the more each organization spends, the higher the percentage
Another perk of participating in the program is that your purchases earn points toward the purchase of gas at a Kroger gas station -- by taking advantage of double points options, coupons, etc., it is possible to reduce the cost of gas by up to $1.00 per gallon.
If you are already enrolled in the program, each of your store receipts will have printed on the bottom of the receipt: “At your request, Kroger is donating to SWEET ADELINES INTER MOTOR CITY BLEND CHORUS” it is important to remember that everyone participating in the program needs to re-register after May 1 of each year.
