Kroger Community Rewards – Help MGA!!

Kroger has a charitable giving program called Kroger Community Rewards. It gives back to your charity of choice (MGA) for each dollar earned on your Kroger Plus Card. It does not cost you anything and you do NOT lose your plus card discounts by enrolling in this program. Since the loss of our United Way contribution, it is very important to MGA to receive contributions in as many ways as possible. This program does not cost you anything, except the time it takes to Enroll and is very much appreciated by those suffering from Myasthenia Gravis who receive the benefit of your enrollment. When searching for our organization on the Kroger website enter Myasthenia Gravis Association to find us.
