Kroger stores throughout the Atlanta Division – which includes Georgia, South Carolina, and Northern Alabama – are ringing in the holiday season with The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign.
From Nov. 17 through Dec. 24, volunteer bell ringers will staff their traditional red kettles at Kroger stores to raise funds to provide toys for children, meals for the hungry, coats for the homeless and help for communities facing natural disasters throughout the New Year.
“The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign truly embraces the meaning of holiday spirit,” says Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “We encourage our customers and associates to help us give back to our communities and provide assistance to those in need.”
Last year, Kroger’s Atlanta Division raised more than $1.2 million for The Salvation Army’s annual campaign.
Kroger’s Atlanta Division is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia and is one of the Southeast’s largest retail grocery chains with over 210 stores covering, Georgia, Eastern Tennessee, Alabama and South Carolina. Kroger was recognized by Forbes as the most generous company in the U.S. The company focuses its charitable efforts on hunger relief, K-12 education, women’s health initiatives and local organizations in the communities it serves.
