Kroger’s Atlanta Division is giving its customers the chance to financially assist the nation’s troops and their families by expanding its partnership with the United Service Organization.

From today through July 12, all stores throughout Kroger’s Atlanta Division will encourage customers to “Round Up” their bill to the nearest dollar. In doing so, shoppers will help provide financial assistance to support the service men, women and their families in the community. For example, if a customer spends $99.07 on groceries, they can “Round Up” the bill to $100 and the extra 93 cents will be donated to the USO.

By donating a small amount of change, Kroger customers can collectively make a big difference.

Last year, Kroger’s Atlanta Division customers united to raise more than $192,000 during the “Round Up” campaign. This year, the goal is to raise $200,000.

“Kroger is proud to provide our shoppers with opportunities to support our troops,” says Glynn Jenkins, director of communications/public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division.

“This is our 73rd year partnering with the USO, and we have and will continue to be honored to play our part in serving the military families in our communities.” Since 2011, Kroger customers in the Atlanta Division have raised more than $1 million through the grocer’s annual “Round Up” and “Honoring Our Heroes” campaigns in support of the USO. The “Honoring Our Heroes” promotion featured hundreds of popular products at special sale prices with proceeds supporting USO. For more information, visit www.kroger.com.
