We understand that it is not always easy to give to the organizations we'd like to so we've found a way for our supporters to give monetarily, simply by doing what they do every week, shop!

The Dunes Center is a member of the Ralphs and Foods Co. Community Rewards Programs. Now you can support our organization and Education Programs every time you shop a Ralphs or shop or buy gas at a Foods Co. store or gas station.

How does it work?

Ralphs Community Contribution Program

Use your existing Ralphs Club Card or apply for a club card on your next grocery trip, download the Ralphs program letter with the Dunes Center's organization code print, and take the letter with you to Ralphs. It's so simple, you will immediately begin contributing to the Dunes Center. Thank you in advance for your support! Please contact us if you have any questions.
