From now through mid-August, visit a participating Kroger retailer and drop your cash donation into the coin collection canisters to show your support for the USO! The Kroger Co. is pleased to partner with the USO to thank the men and women of the armed forces and their families.
Customers and associates at participating locations of the Kroger family of stores will be able to show their appreciation and gratitude to service members by donating spare change in specially-marked coin boxes at check stands. All of the funds raised will support the broad range of programs and services the USO provides to military personnel and their families.
The campaign will run in select Kroger stores in Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas; in Ralphs and Food 4 Less stores in California; in Dillon Stores in Kansas and Baker’s stores in Nebraska. Roughly 1,300 stores will participate.
“We are deeply indebted to our service members and their families for the many sacrifices they make on a daily basis on behalf of all Americans. Kroger is honored to partner with the USO to thank our military families for all they do,” said Lynn Marmer, group vice president of corporate affairs for Kroger.
If you shop at a participating Kroger store, be sure to keep an eye out for the sign below, and know that you’re supporting the USO and the Troops!
