Kroger shoppers can aid Georgia 4-H

Kroger customers can help support Georgia 4-H, a program administered by UGA, simply by buying groceries at one of the retailer’s 171 stores across the state.

Like some grocery chains, Kroger rewards shoppers who purchase groceries and fill prescriptions with discounts on fuel purchases. Kroger also donates to a number of schools, churches and other nonprofit organizations when shoppers register their institution of choice through the company’s community rewards program.

Georgia 4-H is one of about 200 groups supported through the program. To help the state’s largest youth development organization, register your Kroger Plus Card at and select the Georgia 4-H Club Foundation (77588) through the community rewards program.

Kroger is one of many companies that have helped support Georgia 4-H over the years, but Kroger was the first corporate partner in the Rock Eagle 4-H Center Cabin Campaign. Kroger customers raised nearly $250,000 to help build new cabins by purchasing paper cabin replicas for $1 from their local Kroger stores.

This project funded the Kroger Customers Cabin that was dedicated in September 2010 and is now one of 11 constructed cabins at the Rock Eagle 4-H Center.
