AMAZON SMILE & KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS – HELP MGA!!

For those who are not aware, Amazon and Kroger each has a charitable giving program that gives back to your charity of choice (MGA) for each dollar spent.  It does not cost you anything and you do NOT lose your Kroger 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.  These programs do 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.

Learn How to Enroll and Designate MGA.
