MTSNC Kroger Cards Available
Use a special MTSNC Kroger Gift Card (available from select MTSNC board members) to do your grocery shopping and Kroger will donate 4% of the recharges to MTSNC.
The gift card can be used for anything, including fuel and prescriptions with the exception of services like money orders, Western Union, lottery tickets, hunting and fishing license and Ticket Master. Recharging the card will need to be done before purchasing groceries, but can be done at the register just before purchase. If it is done at another register or the service desk, it will take up to 5 minutes before the card can be used.
