Kroger's Community Rewards  Campaign 

Benefiting Good Samaritan


Good Samaritan has become a beneficiary of Kroger's Community Rewards campaign.  Kroger Plus shoppers can designate Good Samaritan as a charity that will then receive financial support from Kroger. 

It is very easy to sign up as shown in the KCR Flyer. 

Once you sign up for the program, then Good Samaritan will receive benefits from Kroger whenever your Kroger Plus card is used. 



For KCR Flyer Click Here.




If you have an event that you would like to have at Trinity, please notify the office staff.  To submit your event, you may call the office, e-mail the information to the office, or visit Trinity's website where there is a "Submit Calendar Item" tab found under the "Calendar" section.





The Good Samaritan Program of Tullahoma administers Project HELP funds and works with other public and private agencies to see that those elderly and handicapped in need receive adequate help.


You may contribute to this fund by adding extra amounts to your utility bill through TUB.
