Feed Your Family, Support OVECs Work, Life Is Good!

As of August, 2014, the Kroger card program has changed. Please continue to support OVEC via the changed program. See details here.

Buy apples. Help support OVECs work. Buy salsa. Help support OVECs work. What if every time you shopped for groceries, 5 percent of the money you spent went to OVEC? Well, now it can!

Heres the scoop. Fill out the form below, clip it and mail it to OVEC at P.O. Box 6753, Huntington, WV, 25773-6753 along with a $5 check made payable to OVEC. Write "Kroger gift card" in the memo line. We will purchase and send to you a Kroger gift card. The gift card is rechargeable. Heres where helping OVEC comes in: Every time you buy groceries using your gift card, OVEC gets a donation equal to 5 percent of your purchase total.

Once you receive the gift card, all you have to do is to keep it recharged and OVEC will continue to benefit. Its important to use your gift card regularly so OVEC receives the 5 percent (a gift card with a zero balance for 90 days will be voided out of the system).

When your balance is zero, dont throw it away, but have it recharged for any amount up to $500. Go to any Krogers customer service desk prior to shopping, and add whatever amount you want. Remember that you have to have an adequate amount on the gift card to cover your purchase BEFORE you get to the register.

Read the back of the gift card when you receive it. Kroger is not responsible for lost, damaged or destroyed cards.  Any balance you had on the card will be lost along with the card.

Thanks to OVEC member Carey Lea for bringing this opportunity to our attention, and to you for helping us.

To enroll in the Kroger gift card program:  print this pdf form, or just write the information on paper and send it OVEC.

YES! I want OVEC to receive 5 % of my purchases from Kroger! Please enroll me in the Kroger gift card program.
