Shop Kroger, Give to VASWCD Educational Foundation!

Looking for a way to give back to the VA Assn of SWCD Education Foundation? Get involved with the “Kroger Community Rewards® Program.” It’s FREE and doesn’t affect your Kroger card benefits. SWCD Directors, Associate Directors, Staff, Partners and friends are eligible and encouraged to get involved with this program.
