The Coos Bay Boat Building Center has been accepted in the Fred Meyer Community Awards Program. Anyone with a Fred Meyer Awards card can go online and sign up to support their favorite non-profit. Points you earn will also be applied to the non-profit’s account. It’s a win-win, you earn points for yourself and the Boat Building Center will receive credit with your number of points as well. Fred Meyer sends out Community Award payments quarterly.
It’s very easy to set up your Community Awards account. Their website is a little slow, so be patience when entering your information.
- The first step is to go to the Fred Meyer webpage. www.fredmeyer.com
- Click on Make Your Account – this is your name, card number, etc.
- Once your account has been set up, type in Coos Bay and a list of the non-profits will show – Coos Bay Boat Building Center is on the list.
- Click on Coos Bay Boat Building Center, scroll down a bit and click on enroll.
- Done! The points you earn stay with your personal account and are also applied to the BBC.
Thank you for your support. Our treasurer will track the payments received from Fred Meyer and include in the financial report to the board. Information about the Community Awards Program will also be sent to our membership. Funds will be used to support workshops and classes at the center.
