Kroger Benefits Doctors & Lawyers for Kids

Just in time for Thanksgiving shopping, Doctors & Lawyers for Kids has become a beneficiary of Kroger's Community Rewards Project. With very little effort, a percentage of what you spend at Krogers will be donated to their organization.

If you already have a Kroger card, you are halfway there. (Kroger cards are available at all stores in the customer service department). Go to the main Kroger website (www.kroger.com): Community Rewards. You will be prompted to sign in or open an account. Once signed in, you can enroll or update your Community Rewards under your Account Settings.

Under Account Settings/Community Rewards, it will prompt you to "Find your Organization." Enter the number 90919 or type in "Doctors & Lawyers for Kids" and search. When their name comes up, choose their organization.
