Volunteering

Longmont Genealogical Society Fund Raising Activity

Apart from our members dues, LGS has only one major fund raising activity. We participate in the King Soopers (Kroger Companies) Community Rewards Program. Through this program LGS receives a small percentage of ever dollar spent at any Kroger affiliated store nationwide for purchases using a King Soopers (Kroger) customer loyalty card linked to our community rewards number. Last year we received over $600 from only 17 linked cards. Think of what we might receive if we had 60 or 70 linked cards!?! Click Here for Instructions on how to link your Card.  So if you don't have a King Soopers card, please consider getting one and linking it to our number. And be sure to use your card when shopping for groceries!
