Dillons Community Rewards

In January of this year, the Dillons Dollars program our church has been using was replaced by Dillons Community Rewards. It became necessary to create an account with Dillons and assign our church to received community rewards every time you use your Dillons card. To continue to support Highland Park United Methodist Church, you will need to complete this process every January. Remember: Any fuel points you earn from prescriptions or shopping still go to you. 

Come Join the Media Team!
