KROGER CARDS Do you shop at Kroger’s or Scott’s? If so, there is a very simple way to provide funds for St. Alban’s. Simply sign the poster on the bulletin board by March 30, indicating that you would like to purchase a $5 gift card. Then reload that card at the customer service desk at the store where you shop. Each time the St. Alban’s account reaches $1,000, we get a 3% rebate check. Many of you have credit cards which generate points for you. If you reload using your credit card, you get points for that and the church gets credit for the reload amount.
