Shop and Do Good

Jackson area residents can now support one of the city's important nonprofits without a second thought every time they buy groceries at Kroger.

http://contactthecrisisline.org/">CONTACT the Crisis Line provides important support to people in difficult situations, whether they be suicidal, victims of abuse or other life-threatening situations. Trained volunteers are available via telephone or online chat.

Kroger now provides an easy way to support CONTACT by routing a portion of every purchase made by folks who complete the easy sign up (see the instructions below). Kroger is committed to helping communities grow and prosper. Year after year, local schools, churches and other nonprofit organizations will earn millions of dollars through Kroger Community Rewards. The program was designed to make fund-raising easy. All you have to do is shop at Kroger and swipe your Plus Card.

CONTACT the Crisis Line is honored to be chosen as one of these community nonprofit organizations by Kroger, and urges readers to enroll now for the Kroger Community Rewards Program. And remember: All participants must re-enroll each year to continue earning rewards for their chosen organization.
