8. Supporting Amateur Radio through rewards cards

How many District 3 ARES members shop at a Kroger supermarket?  Do they use Kroger Plus shopper’s cards?  Did you know that Plus cardholders may designate a non-profit organization to receive donations through Kroger?  And what does any of this have to do with amateur radio? 
I’m so glad that you asked!  Four Ohio District 3 amateur radio organizations, including Montgomery County ARES, have registered with Kroger to receive such donations.  If you link your Plus card to one of these organizations, Kroger will donate a portion of the quarterly transactions on that card to the non-profit that you select.  If you don’t care for any of the current choices, you can apply to add your organization of choice to their list.  My non-profit selection receives about $15 a year from Kroger’s. 
To select one of the current choices, or to apply to add another amateur organization to their list, go to the Kroger website: www.kroger.com .  Under the Savings and Rewards link, go to Kroger Community Rewards.
