Arguably the most recognizable and beloved grocery chain in the Rocky Mountain region, King Soopers is also a hugely philanthropic company that gives back enormously to its communities.
Their parent organization, The Kroger Co., is one of the world’s largest grocery retailers, with fiscal 2012 sales of $96.8 billion. Kroger’s Family of Stores spans many states with store formats that include grocery and multi-department stores, discount, convenience stores and jewelry stores. They operate under nearly two dozen banners, all of which share the same belief in building strong local ties and brand loyalty with their customers.
Today they contribute more than $220 million annually in funds, food and products to support local communities. Like them on Facebook, or better yet — do your grocery shopping at the store nearest you!

On June 1, the Barnes & Noble store on Colorado Boulevard (in Denver) hosted a book fair and multi-activity extravaganza to benefit the Big Brain Club. That’s right: We launched a rocket in the parking lot.
Everything purchased in the store or online between June 1-8 using our special voucher benefited The Big Brain Club.
The Denver Museum of Nature & Science was on hand to help kids build and launch paper rockets. And if that weren’t enough, Dr. Andrew Aldrin from United Launch Alliance talked about the moon and shared planetary and space photos!
