King Soopers Neighborhood Rewards Program

Kings Soopers Logo

King Soopers Neighborhood Rewards Program gives back to the communities where we shop.  Our Chapter benefits as a member of this program.  Here's how it works.  You purchase a King Soopers gift card from the Chapter for $2.50 (this is the amount already pre-loaded on the card). Then take the card to a King Soopers (or City Market) location to load the card with any amount up to a maximum of $500 and use this card to purchase your groceries or fuel.  The card can be reloaded over and over again. Everytime you reload the card, King Soopers donates 5% of the amount you load to our Chapter.  So, at no cost to you, you can support the Scleroderma Foundation just by using the card everytime you shop.  For more information or to purchase a card, please contact our Chapter office at (303) 806-6686 or cochapter@scleroderma.org.  (It's not too early to start thinking about the holidays - these cards make great stocking stuffers!)
