Kroger Neighbor-to-Neighbor Donation Program
Once you are enrolled, a percentage of your purchases goes to the school. To enroll you have to give the Kroger cashier the school’s barcode when he scans your KrogerPlus card. You have to do this only once. After that all your purchases for the year will make a difference.

Central Market Fundraising Program
We have Central Market school cards. When you give the card to the Central Market cashier during check-out the school will receive a percentage of your purchase. Please contact us ( to receive the school’s Central Market card.

Simplified Script - Gift Cards
Simplified Scrip sells gift cards for all kinds of stores including grocery stores, pharmacies, hardware stores, office supply stores, etc. The school gets a percentage of the value of each gift card you purchase. For example, the school gets 3% of every Whole Foods or ACE hardware gift card. You can order these gift cards by phone (1-800-514-1891), by fax, by mail or online on their website and then use them to pay when you go shopping. When you order the cards you have to specify Shining Star School as the recipient of the donation. They might also ask you for the last name of the teacher whose classroom the money is supposed to go to. You can leave it blank or specify Dorothy Ogle’s last name.
