November 21, 2016

8-ways-to-give-back-during-the-holidaysIt’s the time of the year where everyone is thankful for the many blessings they have in their life, and they look to give back. The holidays tend to bring out a charitable side of individuals, and there is no shortage of worthy organizations to support.

At Chatfield, we believe we have something worthy of your support. The students of Chatfield dream big, but don’t always have the means to achieve those dreams. They need your help! We wanted to take this time to let you know of several ways that you can support our students at Chatfield College through purchases you may already be making!

krogercommunityrewardsChatfield College participates in the Kroger Community Rewards Program. Last quarter, 19 households supported Chatfield College through the Kroger Community Rewards Program bringing a total donation back to Chatfield College of $141.  That is an average gift of $7.42 per household.  If we multiple this by four that is an annual gift of $29 per household.  If you have not done so already, please consider joining this program and making Chatfield your charity of choice.

There is not cost to you to join and it is very easy.  Just follow these three simple steps:

  1. Visit
  2. Sign in to your online account or create a new account- You can do this with your alt ID (phone number)
  3. Find and select Chatfield as your organization and click enroll
  4. Shop as usual

Please note that you have to renew your choice annually in April and your fuel points or other discounts will not be adversely affected.

11-29-2016If you are not familiar with GivingTuesday, a yearly day of giving back the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, check out Chatfield’s project this year and join the movement!

On Giving Tuesday, Chatfield students will hand deliver Christmas cards to 100 residents of nursing homes in Blanchester and Over-the-Rhine. In turn, we hope to receive 100 gifts to the college, of any amount, to show our students that they are supported in their quest to achieve a better future!


As you can see, there are many ways to show your support to Chatfield College. You can start giving today without putting out any additional money!

Thank you for all that you do to help better the lives of our students and their families.
