Members & Friends,

Reminder to those of you participating in the Ralphs Community Contribution Program: The new program year begins on September 1st, and all participants MUST re-register on or after that date. This may be done on-line if you prefer, or you can use the scan bar letter – simply take it with you the next time you shop and ask the clerk to scan the bar code when you check out. Register for the new term at www.ralphs.com or by using a scanbar letter at the register STARTING SEPTEMBER 1.

  • If you register online, please note that our organization’s NPO# is 92558.
  • If you would like to register using a scan bar letter, please call the FOFC treasurer at (626) 445-4542 or email treasurer@fofcsgv.org to receive a copy of the letter.
  • And of course, this is the perfect opportunity for anyone who is not already participating to sign up and register FOFC as your community charity of choice.

The more people we have participating, the more money FOFC will earn, so please encourage family and friends who are Ralphs shoppers to join the program. Registration will only take a minute, and FOFC will enjoy the benefits of your participation for another year. Every time you shop, we will earn money in support of our programs. Please register quickly, just remember to wait until September 1st.

Thank you for supporting FOFC through the Ralphs Community Contribution Program.
