KING SOOPERS CARDS
King Soopers Cards are a wonderful way to support Rodef Shalom! Here is how it works: 1. Pick up your card - with $5 already on it - from the Rodef office during business hours or let us know to send one to you. 2. When you are ready to check out, tell the check-out person that you want to add money to your card before they start ringing up your groceries. There is no need to go to the courtesy counter to add money to your card. If you use a credit card, there is no credit card fee and you get the points. You can also add money to your card after your groceries have been rung up. 3. Use your card to pay whenever you checkout. 4. Rodef Shalom receives 5% of the amount you put on your card! Thank you for supporting Rodef Shalom! Michele Campbell, Executive Director
