What is Community Rewards?

King Soopers Community Rewards donates to local organizations based on the shopping you do every day. Once you link your card to an organization, all you have to do is shop at King Soopers and swipe your SooperCard!

You must present your SooperCard or provide your Alternate ID at the register during the transaction for it to count toward the program.

A digital account is needed to participate in King Soopers Community Rewards. If you already have a digital account, you will need to ensure you have a SooperCard linked to your account so that your transactions apply toward the organization you choose.

How do I select an organization to support? 

Selecting the organization that you wish to support is as simple as updating the King Soopers Community Rewards selection on your digital account.

1. Sign in to your digital account (or create a new one).

2. Go here to search for your organization.

3. Enter Friends of East Manual Lacrosse or RS146.

4. Select the appropriate organization from the list and click “Save.”

Your selected organization will now display in the King Soopers Community Rewards section of your account, and you can always find more details, like the total you earn each quarter, under your Account details.

Any transactions moving forward using the SooperCard number associated with your digital account will be applied to the program. It takes approximately 10 days for your Community Rewards total to begin displaying on your receipt.

Players on the team are part of Student Council, the Athletic Leadership Council, Key Club, Sustainability Club, DECA, Model UN, the Spotlight, East Angelus, and Angels on Air.
