The Torah is replete with stories of intense people, complicated families and messy relationships. Sound familiar?

Get Your King Soopers Gift Card to Support Har HaShem Teens Going to Israel 



  Get Your King Soopers Gift Card to Support 

  Har HaShem Teens Going to Israel 


When you shop at King Soopers, there's a way to support Har HaShem teens who want to go to Israel! Get a special gift card from the Har HaShem office for a one-time purchase of $5 and load additional value (using cash, check, or a credit card) onto it during your next visit to the supermarket. You can load a lot once a month or a little each time you go to the store. "Load" the gift card at the service counter, or right at the check stand before your order is rung up. Then, every time you shop at King Soopers - in the store or at the gas pump -remember to use this special card for our program to receive credit. King Soopers tracks the card, and once a month sends HHS a check. You use the same card over and over. It's that easy to help our teens!


TIP OF THE MONTH: This program is good in the whole Kroger system which has stores in 31 states nationwide. Friends, families, and college students across the country can participate to help Har HaShem. If you photocopy the back of a card and send it to a loved one, they can load money onto it using a scan gun on the UPC code instead of swiping it. The trick is not loosing the card because it has cash value and cannot be replaced! 


For more information, contact Alise Jackson at (303) 664-1718 or thejxns@hotmail.com.
