    Fundraising Opportunity

    Fund-raising opportunity: In conjunction with Carrs/Safeway, Colony families have the opportunity to sign up their Safeway card with escrip. For a power registration with the group number and info go to to get signed up. From there, Safeway keeps track of groceries bought, then gives Colony a portion of the total spent. This is an awesome way for our families to help fund raise for us. All we do is go shop!
