Kroger Rewards Program - 8 Minutes of your Time, and many Dollars to EYG

At the very end of July the Ecumenical Youth Council signed up with Kroger Rewards, a community sponsored fundraising tool. By using your Kroger Rewards card while shopping at Kroger EYC can earn dollars through Kroger's community rewards. The Ecumenical Youth Council Organization number is 80563….but you don't even have to remember that…you just need to spend 8 minutes on your computer (2 minutes waiting for Kroger to e-mail you is included in the time).

It really is easy. And I even timed myself to prove it to you! Follow these simple directions while at your computer with your Kroger card in hand (and your glasses  to read your Kroger card number if you're like me!)  Now that you're ready…follow these simple directions provided by Kroger. (it really does work, and it REALLY is simple) And best of all, you don't HAVE to sign up for Kroger e-mails…just don't click on those options!
