Posted on Tuesday, March 6, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Kroger is joining forces with the American Red Cross to provide aid to victims of the recent tornadoes.  As of Monday, customer donations will be accepted at all middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky Kroger locations.

Locally, there are Kroger stores in Tullahoma, Winchester and Shelbyville.

All monies collected will be forwarded directly to the American Red Cross for relief efforts tied to the recent disasters.

“We are thankful for this opportunity to work with the American Red Cross to lend a helping hand,” said Melissa Eads, community 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 to be distributed to those affected by the recent tornadoes.
