Option 2: Earn money for KVFD via eScrip
|The Kirkwood Volunteer Fire Department (KVFD) has recently joined Electronic Scrip Inc. (eScrip), a California based corporation formed to reward customer loyalty by partnering with a wide range of participating merchants (including Macy’s, Target, Nordstrom and hundreds of others) who contribute a percentage of your purchase to your favorite non-profit. eScrip is best known for helping to fund school programs, but participates with a number of other community and civic non-profits, and meets strict requirements in safety, security and confidentiality of your personal information. Now you can contribute to the KVFD all year long by following these 3 steps: (1) Go to www.escrip.com and follow the instructions to sign up, choose the Kirkwood Volunteer Fire Department as one of up to three organizations you wish to support, and register your grocery cards (from participating grocers) and existing credit/debit cards. You will receive a welcome email from eScrip confirming your participation in the program. (2) Supporters use their registered cards when paying for merchandise, from groceries and clothing to sporting equipment, travel and entertainment. Participating merchant locations, and the Online Mall that includes hundreds of popular shops and other businesses, are listed on the escrip.com website. (3) The participating merchant contributes a percentage of the sale to the KVFD. If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Gillies at email@example.com|
