ARE YOU ENROLLED IN KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS?
Kroger Community Rewards is a program that rewards the Ada Music Boosters for purchases that registrants make at Kroger using their Kroger Plus Card! Registrants already know that by shopping at Kroger and using their Kroger Plus card, Kroger makes quarterly payments to the Ada Music Boosters. Registrations do expire in the spring, so it is important to check your receipt to see if your purchases are still going to help the Music Boosters. Thank you to everyone that has participated in this program! If your registration has expired, please re-enroll following the instructions posted on our Kroger re-enrollment page. Instructions for first-time enrollments are also provided.
