Raising money for your summer mission trip (or summer camp or any summer activity) can be hard. Here’s another idea to help you get the funds you need.
Kroger grocery stores (King Soopers in the West) have a gift card program that helps people in your church as well as you. The basic idea is for your group to give out rechargeable gift cards that friends, family, and people in your church use to buy groceries. Kroger/King Soopers then credits a portion of those purchases to your groups account. The details vary a little by location or region of the country. The best way to get started would be to visit your local Kroger or King Soopers and ask to speak to a manager.
Here are two links to information for example programs at King Soopers and Kroger.
My oldest son’s best friend’s baseball team uses this program and they love it. Everyone needs groceries. Kroger/King Soopers are pretty reasonable. It’s a very simple way to help your group raise funds from something everyone in your church does every week.
