You May Be Shocked

You may be shocked to learn how many families had their Kroger Plus card linked to support the Butterfly Garden. I know I was shocked... the total number of families linked during this past year was 3.   Yes... THREE families, and ours was one of the THREE.  

In years past, money from the Kroger Program has provided, tools, plants, trees, and soil conditioner at various times.  This year the amount made was not enough to even have Kroger send a check.  Despite strong support in the 2007-2011 time frame, support now has been essentially NIL. 

It costs nothing to sign up and it does not detract from your Kroger Fuel Points.... but you do need to "RE-LINK" your card each year by going on-line.  It was this change that seemed to kill the important source of income for the garden.

And this is the month Butterfly Garden supporters can start RE-LINKING their Kroger Plus Card for the 2015/2016  program to continue supporting the garden. Just visit Kroger's secure website www.KrogerCommunityRewards.com to link your Kroger plus Card.
   The Butterfly Garden's number is 82607  and is under Association for Better Community Schools
