Partners in Progress (PIP) just received our quarterly report from the Kroger Community Awards program. This is such an easy way to give to PIP. If you shop at Kroger and have a Kroger's reward card, all you have to do is go on-line to kroger.com and link your card to Sevier County Partners in Progress either by name or by using MT328. If you do not have a Kroger rewards card, you can pick one up at the customer service desk. All that is required is to have a valid email address and a rewards card. When you shop, the bottom of your receipt will show that a donation is being made to PIP through your shopping there. It doesn't cost you anything. It has not impact on your gas rewards. Please help us out! This report shows we have 10 households participating. Help us double that. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less
