May 2014: Update Your Enrollment in the Kroger Community Rewards Program on
Behalf of PLACES

This past year, you, our generous supporters, have donated $531.05 through the Kroger Community Rewards Program just by registering your Kroger Plus Card online. The Kroger Community Rewards Program has dedicated $4 million this year to assist local charitable organizations starting May 1, 2014 to April 30, 2015. 

If you would like to support PLACES, it’s time to complete your annual enrollment or re-enrollment in this program.

Beginning immediately, you can support PLACES at no cost to you by simply registering or re-registering your Kroger Plus Card through Kroger Community Rewards online by selecting PLACES, #81996, as your charity of choice.

Beginning May 1, 2014, PLACES will begin earning a percentage of your purchases (the funds will be used to offset the rising cost of services provided to PLACES residents, clients and tenants).

Following are instructions so you can register your Kroger Plus Card and identify PLACES as your charity of choice.

If you have any questions, please contact Kathy Nickell at 937.461.4300.
