Kroger Cares

Ada FUMC is partnering up with the Kroger Company through the Kroger Cares program as an opportunity to raise funds for use in the church​.  Every time you shop at ANY Kroger location and scan your Kroger Plus card, a percentage of that sale is returned to the church.  There is no cost to sign up for the program.  All you need to do is shop - which we all know how to do that!  For those who already have a Kroger Plus card, you will need to register your Kroger Plus card to link up with church and for those looking to get your first Kroger Plus card it is easy to get a card and begin shopping.  The program runs from April to April, so ​beginning April 1st you can sign up for the program.

talk to Brian Hofman or contact him at or 419-772-1878 or read church emails with additional details that will be sent out on a regular basis.
