Kroger – a longtime USO partner – understands how many family dinners America’s troops miss while they’re deployed. As a gesture of their appreciation, the grocery giant hosted Red, White and BBQ events in 10 cities and towns across the United States and three additional celebrations on U.S. bases in Germany and Kuwait serving roughly 7,000 troops and their families.
Kroger has been a USO partner since 2010, raising more than $11.9 million through its Honoring Our Heroes program. The funds support USO programs and services that help troops and military families from the moment they join, through deployments and as they transition into civilian life.
