2016 HHS Band Fundraisers
Kroger Community Rewards for the Heritage Band
Parents and Supporters,
The Heritage High School Band has partnered with our local Kroger store(s) to help raise funds for our band with a program called the Kroger Community Rewards. We have been participating in this program for the past three years, but I wanted to take the opportunity to once again give this program the attention it deserves as it has already provided our band program over six thousand dollars!
Q: How Does The Program Work?
Kroger is committed to helping our communities grow and prosper. Year after year, local schools, and other non-profit organizations will earn millions of dollars through Kroger Community Reward. The program was designed to make our fund-raising the easiest in town…all you have to do is go shopping at Kroger and swipe your Plus Card!
Did you know you can support the Heritage High School Band just by shopping at Kroger? It’s easy when you enroll in Kroger Community Rewards! To get started, sign up with your Plus Card and select the Heritage High School Band Boosters as the organization you wish to support. Once you’re enrolled, you’ll earn rewards every time you shop and use your Plus Card!
Q: How Do I Begin the Rewards Program?
It’s quite simple actually.
All supporters must have a registered Kroger Plus card account online to be able to link their card to the Heritage Band. If you do not have a Kroger Plus Card, you can obtain a digital Kroger Plus Card when creating an account online or at any Kroger store. Link your card at www.KrogerCommunityRewards.com.
If you have an existing account, click on “Sign In”, otherwise click on “Create an Account”. If you are a new online customer, you will need to enter your email address, create a password, enter your zip code, click on favorite store, and agree to the terms and conditions. Once you are done entering your information you will get a message asking you to check your e-mail inbox and click on the link within the body of the e-mail that was sent to activate your Kroger account.
Q: What if I already have a Kroger.com account?
Then enter your email address and password and click “Sign In”. Click on Community then on Community Rewards”. Then click on enroll now, complete personal information, click on save.
Enter the Heritage High School Band Boosters number (83701) or name and then click on “Search”. Select Heritage High School Band Boosters and click on “Save”.
To verify that you enrolled correctly, you will see Heritage High School Band Boosters on the right side of your account settings page. Once you are linked, you can start earning rewards immediately toward the organization you are supporting.
The message saying that you are supporting the Heritage High School Band through the Kroger Community Rewards program will start printing on your receipt about 10 business days after you linked your card.
If you enrolled last year, you will need to update your information as Kroger asks that you re-enroll each year.
Q: Is it Possible to See What I Have Donated to the Heritage Band?
Yes, it is.
Sign in to your Kroger account and go to www.KrogerCommunityRewards.com
Click on “View Your Rewards Details” to see how much you have earned for the Heritage High School Band! (Note: This information will only be available and updated at the end of each cycle.)
Remember, you must swipe your registered Kroger Plus Card or use your Alt ID when shopping for each eligible purchase to count. You must link your card every year, starting August 1st to support the Heritage High School Band.
Q: How Can I Reach All of My Friends or Group Members and Tell Them about the Program?
That’s very easy!
Spread the word as anyone who shops at Kroger can support the Heritage High School Band!!
Since we have received an organization number (83701) just publish it or tell your friends to visit the Kroger Community Rewards Website at www.kroger.com/communtyrewards The Heritage High School Band has profited over six thousand dollars already through the Kroger Community Rewards Program with approximately thirty families participating!! Imagine the profits our band could realize if we increased this number? And just by shopping!!
