Every child deserves a chance to experience the beauty and wonder of our natural world and there is so much to learn by doing so.  The Friends of Sunrock Farm is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing funding for low income schools and students wishing to visit the farm. Through their efforts, many children who could not afford to come to the farm have enjoyed a hands-on adventure working with animals, hiking through woodlands and pastures and exploring the wonders of a creek.

If you are a Kroger Shopper...

... please help the Friends with your Kroger Rewards Card (that's the customer loyalty plastic card they scan at the cash register in order to give you sale prices  -- if you don't have one, ask any Kroger cashier and they will get you one) .  All you have to do is have your Kroger Rewards Card and/or your phone number handy, log onto krogercommunityrewards.com, register for an account (if you don't already have one) or sign into your account (if you do have one), then follow the directions.  In the section entitled "Community Rewards", designate the Friends of Sunrock Farm (#55735) as the organization you wish to support.  Then, based on the money you spend at Kroger's, they will contribute a certain amount to the Friends!  -- And it won't cost you anything extra, nor will it affect any fuel points you earn by using your Kroger Rewards Card.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Sunrock office at 859-781-5502 and talk to Carol.  She will be happy to help you and/or walk you through the process.
