Kroger Community Rewards Basics
What Kroger Community Rewards?
Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” and now it means you can contribute to St. George’s while you shop at Kroger without spending a penny extra.
Who Issues Kroger Community Rewards?
St. George’s is partnering with charitable programs at grocers in our area: Kroger Community Rewards program. You register your Kroger Plus card and they give St. George’s a percentage of what you spend when using the card.
Why is St. George's Involved?
In this difficult economy, annual estimates of giving have declined. To meet our obligations and program needs, we will need to raise $22,000 beyond regular contributions. The Scrip program is a way for you to help meet that goal with no additional cost to you.
