Kroger stores throughout the Atlanta Division are encouraging customers and associates to donate to the American Red Cross, which is providing shelter, meals, emotional support and other necessities to those affected by the deadly aftermath of Hurricane Sandy after it made landfall on Monday.
In support of the thousands of Americans affected by Hurricane Sandy, Kroger is launching a “Round-Up” campaign today in which customers can round up their purchases to the nearest dollar – the difference benefiting the American Red Cross and its disaster relief efforts in the Northeast.
Customers can also make donations to the American Red Cross at Kroger cash registers.
“Our hearts are with our friends and neighbors in New York, New Jersey, and across the East Coast who have been devastated by this unimaginable superstorm,” said Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “We ask that our customers come together as we ‘Round-Up’ support for Sandy’s countless victims. With their donations, we can help make a difference in the lives of so many.”
Donations can be made at all Kroger locations in the Atlanta Division, which includes, Georgia, South Carolina, Northern Alabama and Eastern Tennessee.
