----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------       Kroger Community Rewards:

Please enroll or re-enroll by 6/2/2014 with Boy Scout Troop 734, organization #81287

 

Troop 734 participates in the Kroger Community Rewards Program.  Each April/May, members must re-enroll in order for the Troop to continue getting rewards from your purchases at Kroger.

 

To re-enroll, just go to www.krogercommunityrewards.com, sign in, and select organization #81287 “Boy Scout Troop 734”.

 

To enroll for the first time, you must first have a Kroger Plus loyalty card from a Kroger store.  Then go to www.krogercommunityrewards.com, follow the prompts to create an account, and select organization #81287.

 

Please keep “Boy Scout Troop 734” as your KCR designated recipient.  The funds received by the Troop will directly benefit your son by going toward Troop outings and expenses, and help to keep the dues and grub fees from increasing.

 

Be sure to swipe your Kroger Plus card (or enter your phone number on the keypad) when you shop at Kroger.

 

Thank you for your support of Troop 734!

P.S.  A small token of appreciation will be given to each Scout that shows to Mrs. Bryan: a printout or a smartphone screen showing that your family has linked your Kroger card to organization #81287 “Boy Scout Troop 734”.  Each Scout will be able to select (1) item from a variety of snack treats or Ski soda, for EACH separate household/family he gets to enroll during the period 4/28-6/2/2014.

 

Example: the Scout shows Mrs. Bryan that his mom, grandma, aunt, and a neighbor, all in separate homes, all linked their Kroger cards to #81287 “Boy Scout Troop 734”.  This scenario would earn the Scout (4) treats or cans of Ski soda.
