HOW THE KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS PROGRAM WORKS

Did you know every time you use your Kroger Plus card, a portion of the sales will help Christmas Wish? It's true. Christmas Wish is now a charitable organization under Kroger's Community Rewards Program. They've given millions of dollars away to different schools, churches, and non-profits. The reward program is tied directly to your Kroger Plus Card. It's a bonus and doesn't affect your fuel points earnings.

If you have a Kroger Plus Card, go to Kroger.com or log into the Kroger app to get registered. Now, it needs to be linked to the Christmas Wish rewards program. I went through the Kroger app, which took less than 3 minutes to complete!

STEP 1:

After you're logged in, go to the drop-down menu at the top right-hand side. Click on "Rewards".

Start shopping, and a percentage of your sales will be donated back to Christmas Wish. It's as easy as that!

"The Kroger Family of Companies is committed to community engagement, positive social impact, and charitable giving at the national and local levels. Every community is unique, but our common goal is to partner with the neighborhoods we serve and help the people there live healthier lives."

CHRISTMAS WISH MISSION

Since 1976 Christmas Wish has been “MAKING SURE EVERY CHILD IN THE TRI-STATE GETS A VISIT FROM SANTA”.

To celebrate the 47th year of Christmas Wish, 2,038 families received Christmas. 8,252 children had presents under the tree, and over 50,000 gifts were handed out last holiday season.

Why give to Christmas Wish? The program runs from around $500 to $800 annually. Everyone volunteers their time. We get the space, signage, etc. donated. Restaurants feed the volunteers each day during the season. Your donations go to children who need it the most!
