Our hearts and prayers go out to all those who were affected by this week’s DFW tornadoes. We are so thankful that there was no loss of life ~ what a miracle! If you are wondering how you might be able to help in the relief efforts, here is a great idea…
DALLAS-FORT WORTH (April 5, 2012) – Kroger joins forces with local media outlets to host collection drives and raise money for tornado relief efforts in North Texas.
Through April 30, 2012, shoppers have the opportunity to participate in a coin box fundraiser, presented by Kroger and NBC 5, at all Kroger stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. To donate, customers can simply give their spare change at the register. Kroger will match customer donations up to $50,000. 100% of the monies collected will benefit the American Red Cross.
Kroger has teamed up with and KLTY-FM and Clear Channel Radio (KDMX-FM 102.9; KHKS-FM 106.1; KDGE-FM 102.1; KZPS-FM 92.5; and KEGL-FM 97.1) to execute collection drives (list of Kroger locations below) for displaced families and relief workers. Most-needed items include non-perishable food; toiletries; infant clothing; cleaning supplies; tools; shovels; brooms; plastic tubes; work gloves; rubber boots; ice chests and bottled water. All collected items will benefit storm relief efforts in Arlington, Lancaster and Forney.
