Bringing Help and Hope to Our Neighbors and Communities
The Kroger Co. Family of Stores has a long history of bringing help and hope to the communities we serve, including a strong commitment to education. Last year alone, we provided $34.2 million to support schools and education programs. We also contribute more than $220 million annually in funds, food and products to support local communities.
We’re focused on feeding the hungry through more than 80 local Feeding America food bank partners, in addition to supporting women’s health, our troops and their families, and local schools and grassroots organizations. We’re also strong supporters of The Salvation Army, American Red Cross and organizations that promote the advancement of women and minorities.
At a time when community needs had never been greater, Customers and Associates from the Kroger Co. Family of Stores opened their hearts and wallets in 2012 to support The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle holiday campaign. Through storefront participation nationwide, a record-breaking $14.5 million was raised by Kroger Customers and Associates. This figure represented more than 9% of total Salvation Army Red Kettle donations in 2012
From Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve, bell ringers worked the iconic Red Kettles in front of Kroger stores. Kroger executives in Cincinnati joined the ranks, as did Associates across the country. At Fry’s stores in Arizona, the annual campaign kicked off with a Big Ring event which raised $22,000 in one day. More than 1,000 Associates from the Kroger Columbus division turned out in force at their stores’ Kroger Red Kettle Day and raised $30,000 on November 30. Every dollar donated during the annual program stays in the community where the money is raised and assists local families in need.
These donations support the critical services The Salvation Army provides to adults and children in local communities year-round. Whether it’s feeding hungry families, providing holiday toys for needy children, helping communities during natural disasters or offering coats to the homeless, The Salvation Army is committed to serving the communities we share every day.
In addition to supporting the annual Red Kettle holiday campaign, Kroger divisions partner with local Salvation Army units to support specific local programs. For example:
- King Soopers and its Associates’ partner with The Salvation Army in Denver to serve Thanksgiving dinner to 1,500 of that region’s homeless.
- The Fred Meyer stores’ annual Toy Drive ensures that thousands of needy children in Oregon and Washington will have a gift to open on Christmas
- As a key partner of The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree project in Kentucky and Tennessee, stores in the Kroger Mid-South division ensure that thousands of local families enjoy a holiday meal.
Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through a broad range of social services.
