How much do you spend on groceries each week? Thanks to the King Soopers Neighborhood Reward Program, every dollar you load onto your Neighborhood Rewards card, 5% will be contributed to Pikes Peak Lacrosse Player Scholarships and Equipment Funds.  The program is a great, no-cost way to help PPL keep registration fees low and provide financial aid to those families in need who wish to participate in our lacrosse program.

If just 50 families used their Reloadable Gift Card to purchase $200 of groceries per week it would amount to $26,000 per year to Pikes Peak Lacrosse.  If 150 families committed to spending $250 with their card each month, PPL would earn $22,500 in one year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do I use it?

A. The reloadable card comes preloaded with just $5. You must first load your card, at the King Soopers customer service desk, the check stand or the gas station, with any amount up to $500. The card can then be used like a gift card. The funds will be deducted from your card with every transaction and your balance will be printed on the bottom of your receipt. You can reload your card as often as you wish. You may use your gift card to purchase groceries and gas.

Q. Do I have to go to King Soopers customer service desk every time I load my card?

A. No. While you can go to the customer’s service desk if you prefer, you can also present your reloadable card to the cashier just before you check out or load it at the gas station. You must ask the cashier before they begin scanning items. Then it’s simple. Add funds to the card. Then check out and pay with those added funds. In practice, you can carry a zero balance every moment of the day except during the time you check your groceries out. Loading your card only adds seconds onto your transaction.

Q. Is my card only accepted at our neighborhood King Soopers?

A. No. All King Soopers, City Markets and Kroger stores and gas stations across the U.S. will accept this card! On the back of the card, in fine print, is a full list of participating stores.  You can take your card with you and use it all over the country. You can send a card to Michigan for grandma to use at Kroger, and your cousin in Seattle can use one to shop at Fred Meyer. It is an easy way to get your friends and relatives to earn money for Pikes Peak Lacrosse!

A. No. King Soopers provides the PPL with cards that are linked specifically to our organization. You must get a card directly from Pikes Peak Lacrosse.

Q. Am I making the donation to Pikes Peak Lacrosse, or is King Soopers?
