Easy Ways to Support the HHS PTSA

Passive Fundraising is an easy way to raise money for HEBRON HS PTSA. Every little bit makes a big difference!


Amazon Smile

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization.

How do I shop at AmazonSmile?

To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.

Funds raised by the PTSA support senior scholarships, parent and student programs, and teacher grants.


Kroger Community Rewards

Kroger Community Rewards makes fund-raising easy by donating to local organizations based on the shopping you do everyday. Once you link your card to an organization, all you have to do is shop at Kroger and swipe your Plus Card! A digital account is needed to participate in Kroger Community Rewards.

Have you updated your Kroger Card to benefit Hebron HS PTSA this year?

Community Rewards must be updated each year for the Hebron HS PTSA to continue to benefit from purchases you are already making! A digital account is needed to participate in Kroger Community Rewards.
  • If you already have a digital account, you will need to ensure you have a Plus Card linked to your account. Please log into your Kroger account https://www.kroger.com and under "My Account" update the "Community Rewards" section to EB014 to Hebron HS PTSA.
  • Your selected organization will now display in the Kroger Community Rewards section of your account. If you need to review or revisit your organization, you can always find these details under your Account details.
  • Any transactions moving forward using the Shopper’s Card number associated with your digital account will be applied to the program. It takes approximately 10 days for the Kroger Community Rewards total to begin displaying on your receipt.

Thank you for your support!
