Kroger Launches Toys for Tots Campaign
The Kroger Co. has launched its annual support of the Toys for Tots campaign in all 147 stores of its Indianapolis-based Central Division.
Kroger customers and associates may contribute via coin boxes at all checkout lanes, self-checkouts and pharmacy counters through Nov. 5, the Greencastle (Ind.) Banner-Graphic reported.
The Cincinnati-based grocer’s goal for this year’s campaign is to top the $20,991 its stores helped raise last year for the Toys for Tots program. To that end, Kroger has added an additional fundraiser in its northeast Indiana stores. From Nov. 6 through Dec. 18, store associates and customers may place new, unwrapped toys in collection bins in all northeast Indiana Kroger, Scott’s and Owen’s stores, the Banner-Graphic reported. Donated toys will be collected by the U.S. Marine Corps’ regional Toys for Tots coordinator and distributed to needy children.
Kroger’s Central division includes 147 supermarkets, 121 pharmacies and 64 fuel centers under the Kroger, Hilander, Owen’s and Pay Less banners in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio.
