Kroger shoppers can support the Friends of the Pumpkinvine by using their Plus card

Kroger shoppers who also are supporters of the Friends of the Pumpkinvine now have a way to contribute to the Friends simply by swiping their Plus card when they shop. In January 2016, the Friends of the Pumpkinvine became eligible to receive contributions through Kroger’s Community Rewards Program. All that is required is for Kroger shoppers to pick the Friends of the Pumpkinvine from a list of eligible organizations on the Kroger website.
