Spring has sprung and that means it's time to plant your flowers and re-enroll in Kroger Community Rewards. Each April, Kroger wipes the slate clean and you have to do it all over again.
If you don't know about this program, here's how to do it.
To get started, head over to Kroger’s Community Rewards page.
Create an account with your Kroger Plus Card number.
Once you are logged in, scroll down to the Community Rewards section to add or edit the organization your rewards go to.

Community Fundraisers (Restaurants/Kroger/Amazon)

Then you need to publicize these special Sherwood days to the Sherwood community and encourage them to visit the businesses on the specific dates.
With Kroger and Amazon, you need to explain to the Sherwood families how these companies will donate a certain percentage of their purchases back to the school. You have to be creative with sharing the message of how families can help Sherwood earn money.
You will have a co-chair helping you with this committee.
