  • King Soopers Fundraiser

    By in Announcements on
    King Soopers has changed the way we are able to raise funds for the school. It is now available to anyone with a KS loyalty card, and very simple to sign up! The new KS fundraiser requires a KS loyalty card (the card you scan during check-out that allows you to accrue grocery and fuel discounts etc.), and a one time registering of your card and linking it to GWHS. If you already have a KS loyalty card, you can use the same card for the new fundraiser but you will have to register the card online and connect it to GWHS. If you don’t have a loyalty card, stop by the Customer Service Department at your grocery story and they will provide one. This is not a difficult process, and only needs to be done once, and then all of your purchases at the grocery store will provide funds back to GWHS!

    The name of the GWHS non- profit is GWHS Patriots Care Inc and our organization # is JR498.

    You will need to create an online account using your KS loyalty card # (see Step 1 below) and then connect your loyalty card to GWHS (see Step 2 below).

    STEP 1:

    Click HERE

    • Select ‘Create an Account’
    • Under Sign-In information, enter your email and create a password. (Write down your email & password—will need it in step 2)
    • Select ‘Use Card Number’.
    • Enter your King Soopers Loyalty Card Number or Alt ID (usually your phone #), last name and postal code.
    • Under ‘Select Your Preferred Store’ enter your postal code.
    • Select ‘Find Stores’.
    • Choose your store then select ‘Create Account’. You will then be prompted to check your email for a confirmation email.
    • Click the hyperlink in your email to finish creating your Online Account.

    STEP 2

    Click HERE

    • Select ‘Sign-In’.
    • Enter your email and password then select ‘sign in’. (This will be the email and password you created in step 1)
    • Select ‘My Account’ from drop down menu. Then select Community Rewards from the left-hand side under ‘Account Summary’.
    • Under Find an Organization: Enter GWHS Patriots Care Inc or JR498.

    The rest is easy! You will scan your loyalty card during check-out and that’s it. On a quarterly basis, GWHS will receive a rebate from KS. The rebate amount will be determined by our organization’s percent of spending compared with the total spending of all participation organizations.

    Unfortunately, fuel purchases can no longer be credited to this fundraiser.

    Please contact Leslie Shenkel at Lesaltseng@comcast.net with any questions.

    Thank you for supporting GWHS!
