Greetings Cub Scout Pack 859 Parents and Guardians!

I wanted to take a few minutes to ask for your help with a super easy fund raiser to supplement the popcorn sales we do each year. This one is much easier than the popcorn effort and you don't have to do anything further once signed up.

The money raised by our fundraisers drive all the activities the pack does. For instance, the basic expenses for activities like the Rain Gutter Regatta and Pinewood Derby as well as all the monthly progress awards the scouts get at pack meetings. Additionally, the more money we raise, the more we can fund activities such as our spring camp out and also coordinated T-Shirts for all the scouts.

This program is called Community Rewards from Kroger and is a very easy way to help support the pack by
simply doing something you likely already do today (Shop at Kroger!).

All that is required is to link a Kroger Plus card to Cub Scout Pack 859 Non-Profit Organization ID #26359
If you shop at Kroger for anything at all then read on for the very simple process.  There is no cost to you and Kroger will donate a percentage of sales to our organization on a quarterly basis.  Linking your Kroger Plus card to Pack 859 won’t affect any other aspect of your card such as Kroger Fuel Points or Electronic coupons you have. So there is nothing to lose and it will help benefit your scouts cub scout pack.

Here's how to do it!

If you don’t already have a Kroger Plus card you can get one at the Kroger customer service desk.

Once you have a Kroger Card go to Kroger Community Rewards web site

If you have never logged into the Kroger site you must do steps 1-4 to create an account,  if you already have a Kroger Account skip to step 5.
  2. Sign up for a Kroger Rewards Account by entering your email, select a password
  3. Choose your preferred store then click Create Account
  4. You will then get a message to check your email inbox and click on the link provided in the email to validate your account.
  5. Sign in with your email address and password
  6. Click on Edit below section Plus Card and Alt IDs and input your Kroger Plus card number.
  7. Scroll down to Community Rewards, click Edit & search for our Non-Profit Organization Number: 26359
  8. Select Cub Scouts Pack #859 and click Enroll to confirm
  9. To verify you are enrolled correctly, you will see CUB SCOUTS PACK #859 for Organization Name
You can check each quarter to see how much money you earned for the pack just by shopping for groceries!

REMEMBER, purchases will not count until after you register your card.  If you have any difficulty you can link your Kroger Plus card by phone: Call 800-576-4377, select option 3.  Members must swipe their registered Kroger Plus card or use the phone number that is related to their registered Kroger Plus card when shopping for each purchase to count.

And remember, this program isn't limited to just scout parents. Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, pretty much
anyone who wants to help support your scout can also link their Kroger Plus card to support our very own
Cub Scout Pack 859.

NEW!  Confirm by looking at the bottom of your Kroger receipt.

Thanks for your help with making Pack 859 an even better experience for our boys!
