Kroger stores in Dunwoody and metro Atlanta have partnered with WSB-TV and the Junior ROTC for the annual Empty Stocking Fund “Drive Day.”
On Saturday and Sunday more than 2,500 cadets representing 30 metro Atlanta high schools’ JROTC programs will be on-site at more than 67 Kroger stores to raise awareness and funds for the non-profit organization, The Empty Stocking Fund. Kroger customer donations to The Empty Stocking Fund will help provide gifts for thousands of children living in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties.
“Drive weekend is a great experience to work with these young people and share their enthusiasm in helping the less fortunate families in our communities” says Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “The generosity of our loyal customers and associates will help bring holiday cheer throughout Kroger service areas.”
In December – with the monetary donations from Kroger customers and community members – parents and guardians of children from birth to 12 years of age will visit Santa’s Village and select gifts for their children.
The Empty Stocking Fund has been bringing holiday cheer to metro Atlanta's underprivileged children since 1927. To learn more about how you can support The Empty Stocking Fund, please visit www.emptystockingfund.org.
