ATLANTA — Kroger’s Hinesville area customers and associates stepped up to help those in need with donations of $1,948 to the Manna House and Second Harvest through Kroger’s 2009 “Can Hunger” program.
Kroger’s “Can Hunger” food drive, which took place Nov. 15-Dec. 31, gave Kroger customers an environmentally friendly option to help those in need. Under the theme “Reach Out, Reuse and Reduce Hunger,” customers who donated $2 received reusable shopping bags for future visits to Kroger. Customers also purchased $1 or $5 paper icons and all proceeds benefited “Can Hunger.”
“We are extremely grateful to all of the Hinesville customers and associates who donated to the 2009 Kroger ‘Can Hunger’ program, particularly during this economic environment,” said Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “Kroger thanks the Hinesville community for their effort in helping the less fortunate.”     
Kroger’s Atlanta Division raised more than $370,000 for those in need through the 2009 “Can Hunger” program.
