For anyone with a Kroger card, you simply register your card – if you haven’t already done so – by visiting their website. After registering, or signing in if you are already registered, you click on the Community Rewards tab and follow the directions. When you get to the section that says search for a nonprofit you can simply type in Youth Development Commission and it will pop up, you will know it is the right agency when you see our name and address appear. Click on the agency and then next time, and every time in the future a percentage of your Kroger purchase will automatically be donated to YDC. Here is the link to get you started: https://www.kroger.com/communityrewards . It takes about 7 to 10 days after you register your card before your first contribution so register today!
