Use Kroger Community Rewards and/or Amazon Smile to benefit RACC
Dear Friends and Members of RACC – You can now donate to RACC when you shop at Kroger or buy online at Amazon!
The Kroger Community Rewards program has been greatly simplified and no longer requires paying with a special prepaid card. The new system allows you to register your regular Kroger Rewards discount (loyalty) card to direct your share of their charitable donations to RACC. Then you can shop as usual, showing your discount card at the checkout, and a percentage of the amount you buy will be matched by Kroger and given to RACC. The sign-up instructions from Kroger are included below, but advice from those who have tried it is to call the helpline at 1-800 576 4377 to guide you through the process once you have the webpage up on your computer (https://www.kroger.com/communityrewards).
You can also complete the whole process by phone if you choose. The information you will need to have ready is:
- email address
- a password you want to use for the Kroger program account
- home address and ZIP
- Your Kroger card number
- Your Kroger store (Lexington, VA)
- age (not required)
- RACC Registration No: 94439
