Kroger hosts annual Red Kettle campaign

CINCINNATI — Kroger announced that it once again will support The Salvation Army by kicking off its annual Red Kettle campaign.

"Through the familiar Red Kettles, our customers and associates are able to make small donations that, added together, make a big difference for local families and individuals," Kroger group VP corporate affairs Lynn Marmer said. "We value our long-standing partnership with The Salvation Army and the impact this campaign has for our neighbors in need."

In 2010, Kroger customers and associates contributed $12.9 million to the campaign, which represents 9% of the record $142 million raised nationwide. Each year, customers and associates support the Red Kettle campaign that provides food, clothing, toys and social services in the communities where funds are raised.
