We encourage more of our members who shop at Ralphs grocery stores to sign up for this free program, which sends a percentage of grocery purchases to our nonprofit. This is providing us with more funds we can use to support Glendale library programs and services. Partial text of the announcement we received from community.programs@ralphs.com, with key points highlighted:

Dear FRIENDS OF THE GLENDALE PUBLIC LIBRARY,

The Kroger Family of Stores is committed to bringing hope and help to local communities. We do this through a variety of activities, including charitable giving, sponsorships and the unique Community Contributions Program at Ralphs. We are also committed to carefully protecting our customers’ personal information. In order to meet their expectation of privacy, we have adopted a simple policy to never share a customer’s personal information. Our privacy policy applies to Community Contributions participation as well. As your neighborhood food retailer, we deeply value our ability to support local organizations like yours.

Ralphs has supported the communities in Southern California where we operate since 1873 and continues to make our communities a better place to work and live.

Your supporters (12 households) who shopped at Ralphs between 12-1-2015 and 2-29-2016 (Cycle 16, Qtr 2) have contributed to your $97.36 total donation. Your organization will be receiving a Kroger check in this amount.

If your participants would like to see Ralphs contribution made on their behalf, these individual donation amounts are now available online. Please ask your participants sign in to their individual online account at www.ralphs.com then scroll to the Community Rewards section on their account page. The contribution made from the most recent payout based on their purchases is shown in the Community Rewards section.

The more your supporters shop with us, the more money your organization will earn!

Thank you,
Community Rewards Staff
