Changes to Kroger Card Program
To all CKCS Members and Friends:
We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program.
The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization
without dues increases.
Remember, August is the month that all Kroger customers must repeat their signup for
the Community Rewards Program. But, Kroger has made changes in the way that one can sign up to participate.
Please call the Kroger Digital Customer Service line at 1-866-221-4141 and request
that your name and CKCS (NPO number 11119) are added to your Community Rewards Program.
You can also do this online or with your smart phone.
You can do this anytime in August but don't forget.
New CKCS members and non-members can participate in this program. A few days after
you enroll, you will see a message that Kroger has made a donation to CKCS on your purchase
Thank you for participating in Kroger Community Rewards and helping CKCS!
Disk Erasing Service
CKCS is now offering a service to erase your older disk drive so you can feel confident that
no personal information is left on it before you give it away or dispose of it.
Bring your computer or just the disk drive to CKCS to get it erased and returned to you or donated
to charity. Erasing is usually done on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings between 10 AM and 1 PM
or at the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which usually meets on the first Saturday of every
month between 10 AM and noon.
There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
