When you shop at Kroger a percentage of your purchase will be donated to Good Shepherd simply by linking your Kroger Plus Card to Good Shepherd.
How to link your Kroger Plus account:
Be sure to have your Kroger Plus card handy and register your card with your organization after you sign up. If you do not yet have a Kroger Plus card, they are available at the customer service desk at any Kroger. Do you use your phone number at the register? Call 800-576-4377, select option 3 to get your Kroger Plus card number.
To link you card you must register online at www.kroger.com/communityrewards
New account creators:
Purchases will not count until after you register your card. All cards must be registered online to link to Good Shepherd. Once your card is registered, simply swipe your Kroger Plus card or use the phone number that is related to their registered Kroger Plus card every time you shop. Money earned through the Kroger Plus program will help support Good Shepherd’s outreach and mission programs.
