Kroger grocery stores have recently discontinued the Kroger Share Card program and have replaced it with their new Neighbor to Neighbor program. Under this program, you will no longer be required to present a share card at the check-out counter when you wish to donate to SNAP. Instead, you will have a SNAP identification number electronically encoded onto your KrogerPlus Card that will identify SNAP as the organization you wish to support. Kroger has set aside a fund of one million dollars to be divided up among all participating nonprofit agencies. The amount each agency receives will be based on the number of times that agency’s identification number is used by customers in a given year. That means the more you use your KrogerPlus Card, the more SNAP receives to fight animal overpopulation.
Having the SNAP identification number added to your KrogerPlus Card is as simple as having the cashier scan a bar code that contains the SNAP identification number. You only have to do this once a year. (The current Neighbor to Neighbor Program is effective May 1, 2008 to April 30, 2009.) After the bar code has been scanned, the animals will benefit every time you shop for an entire year. The bar code appears below and can be printed and used by Krogers to enroll you in the program. Alternatively, you can download a PDF file that contains the bar code and complete instructions for its use. (Adobe Acrobat is required to view a PDF file.)
If you have questions about the Neighbor to Neighbor Program, you can contact a Kroger representative at 866-995-7643 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information is also available at http://www.krogerneighbortoneighbor.com/.
The Kroger Share Card has been a very beneficial program for the animals, so if you shop at Kroger, please add SNAP to your KrogerPlus Card so that the success can continue.
