Good Neighbor Grocery Programs
Thursday, August 21, 2014

Be a good neighbor by linking your Kroger and Tom Thumb Reward Cards to FFS. Making a difference is as easy as 1-2-3. Every time you shop at your neighborhood Kroger or Tom Thumb, a portion of your purchase amount will be donated to Frisco Family Services. Follow the instructions for each store below. This is a great way to give back and help us prevent homelessness and hunger and address other urgent needs in our communities.

  • Kroger: Click this link, register your Kroger account and add Frisco Family Services as your benefactor by providing the # 84501. Kroger requires a yearly renewal so if you have previously linked your card, you will need to do so again.
