          You can help Colony Middle earn donations just by shopping with your Fred Meyer Rewards Card!

          Fred Meyer is donating $2.5 million per year to non-profits in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, based on where their customers tell them to give.

          Here’s how the program works:

           Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to (non-profit) at www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards. You can search for us by our name or by our non-profit number (insert NPO# here).

          Then, every time you shop and use your Rewards Card, you are helping (non-profit) earn a donation!

          You still earn your Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates, just as you do today.

             If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.
