TBP compassion team supporters,
TBP’s fundraising opportunity using the Kroger Fundraising Gift Cards continues! If you shop at Kroger, this should be really easy! Here’s how you can help TBP meet some needs in our community:
1. If you don’t already have one, you may acquire a gift card from Linda Edwards (772-1628) or Becky Lloyd (952-8912).
2. Load (recharge) your gift card – either at guest services or at the register inside the store. NOTE: If you recharge your card at the register and use your card to pay for your purchases, please ask the cashier to recharge the card BEFORE your purchases are rung. The gift card recharge must be done as a SEPARATE TRANSACTION. The maximum recharge amount is $500.
3. You can purchase all merchandise from Kroger including fuel and prescriptions! (Exceptions are services – money orders, Western Union, postage stamps, lottery tickets, or another Kroger gift card.)
4. If you let your card reach a zero balance, and it remains there for 90 days, the card will expire. Once it expires, it will then need to be replaced with a new card from Linda. An expired card cannot be re-activated. So, don’t let your card reach a zero balance. Please keep money loaded on your card. But, be careful. Once you load your card with money, don’t lose it. It’s like walking around with cash.
Once TBP account reaches $5000 in charges, we’ll receive a 5% rebate in the form of a check. It’s a win-win situation. Supporters of TBP can pick up groceries, prescriptions and buy gas and TBP receives funds to help those in need with beds and others necessities. (And, Kroger doesn’t do too badly, either.) Last year we received close to $2000.00. That’s almost 3 full sets of bunk beds…that’s 6 children off the floor!
Thank you in advance for helping us help others!
