Kroger is joining forces with the American Red Cross to provide aid to victims of the Oklahoma tornado. Starting today, May 21st, customer donations will be accepted at all Central Kentucky Kroger locations. All monies collected will be forwarded directly to the American Red Cross for relief efforts. Kroger will match donations made in its family of stores up to $25,000.
“We are thankful for this opportunity to work with the American Red Cross to lend a helping hand,” said Tim McGurk, public affairs manager for Kroger. “Kroger customers and associates have a history of giving during times of disasters such as these.”
To make a donation, Kroger customers can simply add any amount they wish to their total purchase at time of checkout. The amount of each donation will appear on the customer’s receipt as a contribution to the American Red Cross. 100% of the funds collected will be sent to the American Red Cross.
