We hope all of our Friends are safe, healthy, and practicing social distancing! If you need to head out to the grocery store though don’t forget about the King Soopers Community Rewards Program that supports non-profits like us!
King Soopers is committed to helping communities grow and prosper. They have created a super easy way for shoppers to give back to non-profits like us! All you have to do is enroll in the King Soopers Community Rewards program using your normal SooperCard (or your Alt ID).
Sign into your digital account at https://www.kingsoopers.com/…/king-soopers-community-rewards. If you don’t have a digital account, you can create one. It’s easy!
After creating an account, go to My Account and scroll down to Community Rewards and select Friends of Barr Lake State Park. (Our new NOP number is WD921, although you won’t need it).
Any transactions moving forward using your normal King Soopers savings SooperCard will be applied to the rewards program. It takes about 10 days for the King Soopers Community Rewards total to begin displaying on your receipt.
You can also enroll using the King Soopers app on your phone by going to Account Details and clicking on Community Rewards under the Loyalty section. Click enroll and search Friends of Barr Lake State Park then you are good to go.
Assigning a non-profit to your account WILL NOT affect the accumulation of fuel points.
A percentage of your purchase will go to the Friends of Barr Lake – a support group for Barr Lake State Park! This is a super easy way to give back without having to take any extra money out of your pocket! Thank you to everyone who is already participating!
