Harding’s new rewards helps you and KHS

I’ve been a member of Harding’s eScrip program for years, and each time I shopped there I tried  to remember to hand over my key-chain to the cashier so my card could be scanned.  I was happy to know that I was just one of thousands of residents in southwest Michigan who was supporting the Kalamazoo Humane Society when I shopped!

Earlier this year, Harding’s changed over to a new Community Rewards program.  No more key-ring to hand over, lots more coupons and savings for me, and now I get email notices telling me how much I’ve personally helped raise for KHS!  Check out the email I had in my inbox this morning!

From my email this morning!

If you were a part of the old eScrip program, or if you’ve never joined before, this is a great time to get started with the new Community Rewards program!  It’s really easy to sign up and your account is active immediately.
