Kroger Community Rewards Program: Update



UPDATE: VICCC’s identification number for the Kroger Community Rewards program has not changed, and is still: 82995.  This is the number needed when selecting which charity (VICCC) to support.  If participating, and you would like to continue to participate you do need to re-enroll each year through the Kroger website.  For more information on Kroger’s policy for re-enrollment, please scroll to the bottom of this post.

The Kroger Community Rewards program is an ideal way to support Valley Interfaith Child Care Center! The program allocates funds to participating organizations based on the purchases that registered members, family and friends of the organization have made at Kroger using their Kroger Plus card. Each individual should enroll their Kroger Plus Cards online at the Kroger secure website,, and then choose to support VICCC.  Already have a Kroger Plus card registered to another charity or program?  No problem!  You can sign up for and register multiple cards to help support VICCC and others, too.

VICCC Quaifies for NAP Again!

We are excited to announce that VICCC has qualified for the Virginia Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) for Education again this year!  This tax credit program gives our valued donors the opportunity to apply for up to a 65% tax credit for qualifying donations.*

If you write a check to VICCC for a N.A.P. donation, we ask that you please write “N.A.P. Donation” in the memo/subject line.  This is essential for N.A.P. tracking and record keeping.  Even if your donation is less than the qualifying donation amount, but you plan to donate up to the amount over time, please still make a note on the check.

Without you… there’d be no laughter.
Without you… there’d be no tears.
Without you… the doors would never have opened.
Without you… no children would be here.
Without you… there’d be no playground.
Without you… there’d be no books.
Without you… there’d be no precious moments.
Without you… there’d be no comforting looks.
Without you… the little hands that come here to play,
Wouldn’t have a safe place to go everyday.
Without you… there’d be not a single toy.
There’d be no one to play with these precious girls and boys.
There’d be no hands to lift up the little ones who fall.
There’d be no playing games or running in the halls.
There’d be no place for us to come to play.
There’d be no little ones day after day.

Thank God for planting smiles in the hearts of all of you,
Who started something beautiful and gave us all a view,
Of a mission to empower, educate, love, and grow,
All those blessings that we now have come to know.
