We all want to give money to charity, but at the end of month, that cash intended for a donation seems to disappear when we pay the electric bill, mortgage, gas, water and groceries.
One grocery store is helping customers contribute to their favorite charities just by shopping. Kroger’s “Neighbor to Neighbor” program lets you link your Kroger Plus card to a charity of your choice. Each time you shop at Kroger using your enrolled Kroger Plus Card, Kroger will contribute a portion of your eligible purchases to the Kroger Neighbor to Neighbor fund.
Any 501(c) (3) non-profit, church, synagogue or school (K-12) can enroll in the program to receive a percentage of the $1 million that the Kroger Southwest Division (Texas and Louisiana) awards annually to local groups.
