Congregation Beth Evergreen is in the early stages of putting together its 4th Israel trip in 2014. Meetings are held monthly to customize the itinerary for the group. It's not to late to get on board! If you are interested, please contact Rabbi Jamie Arnold: (303) 670-4294 x 7. Current Itinerary
Our first five checks have arrived and we received $1,437! Thank you to everyone who is participating! Please keep up the momentum (as we only qualify for these dividends in months that $5k or more are 'loaded' onto gift cards. This past month we made by just $200!)
We have been receiving a ton of questions about how to obtain/use the King Soopers gift cards to benefit the CBE Religious School. Hopefully this FAQ will help!
1. Obtain a pre-loaded gift card from the CBE office (it comes with $2.50 already on it).
2. Go to King Soopers to shop!
Before ringing up your groceries 'load' more $money onto your gift card with cash or your credit card. This can either be done at customer service or right at the check-out stand. NOTE: This must be done before you start ringing up your items.
3. Use your gift card to buy groceries or at their Loaf 'n Jug gas stations.
NOTE: you will still get 'points' and 'miles' when you participate.
