Thanks, St. Elizabeth Physicians!
|St. Elizabeth Physicians offices in Kenton County collected nearly 4,000 lbs of food for Be Concerned in a drive completed Dec. 10. The drive was part of a larger effort by the company that generated more than 6,500 lbs. of food for eight organizations that provide food to low-income families in the tri-state. Thanks to the company and all its employees who pitched in to make this project such a success.|

Changes to the Kroger Rewards Program
Benefit Be Concerned with your Kroger purchases
Changes in the Kroger Rewards program make it easier for you to benefit Be Concerned with your purchases at Kroger. The company has discontinued the gift cards previously used in the program and now ties participation to the Kroger Plus cards many of us have on our key rings. To participate, you must have or set up an account at Kroger.com, then select Be Concerned as your charity. Once that is done, Be Concerned will receive 4 % of every in-store transaction you make using your Kroger Plus card.
|Be Concerned is thankful for the dozens of organizations that have done drives for our program this year, and particularly for the more than 30 groups that are doing or have completed 2011 holiday drives. Their efforts have generated thousands of food, hygiene, cleaning supply and other product items, without whichour pantry and holiday programs would not be possible. It's not too late if your organization would like to do such a drive -- call (859) 291-6789 for details.|
