Give Back When You Shop

KS Card - Neighborhood Rewards ProgramIt's easy to support the Scleroderma Foundation when you shop, and it doesn't cost you anything to give through these programs. Use AmazonSmile when you shop online and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases after you sign up through your account and select the Scleroderma Foundation as your charity. 

If you have one of our King Soopers/City Market Neighborhood Rewards gift cards, please get in the habit of using this card whenever you shop because everytime you reload it, King Soopers donates 5% of the amount you load to the Scleroderma Foundation.
