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!
Please consider attending our monthly
meetings. Bring a friend with you.
