Kroger Card Program
Fellow CKCS Member:
Do you do much of your grocery shopping at Kroger? Would you consider using Kroger more if it meant a benefit to CKCS?
Kroger and CKCS have entered into a program whereby Kroger donates a portion of members' grocery purchases to CKCS.
The way we keep track of it all is that each member needs to come by the CKCS office and buy a Kroger gift card for $5. This card is used at the checkout lane of any Kroger store. The cards can be used by any family member.
Initially your card will cover $5 of grocery purchases but the best benefit to CKCS comes if you add to this amount on a periodic basis at your favorite Kroger store as you do your shopping.
One typical plan is for you to write a check to Kroger for an amount roughly equal to what you plan to buy and then stop at the front office of Kroger as you enter the store. They will process the check and add the amount to your card. Then do your shopping and use the card when you checkout. Kroger records your charges and adds them with all other CKCS members' purchases to calculate the monthly donation to CKCS.
You are certainly free to experiment and create your own favorite way to use the card. The cards are necessary to identify CKCS members' purchases to qualify for the donation.
The cards apply to nearly everything available at any Kroger store. Thus with a minimum of inconvenience you can encourage Kroger to support CKCS just by doing your normal grocery shopping. One warning: the cards are the same as gift cards and therefore can be used if lost or stolen, so take care of them.
