The EF5 tornado, which killed 11 people and responsible for 95 per cent of the population on the evening of 4 May 2007, destroyed Greensburg, KA. The tornado was measured to be 1,7 kilometers high — larger than the town itself — and was almost 22 miles long. The storm affected and suffered damage to both Dillons and Kwik Stores in the city.
However, as they have done for more than 80 years, they continue to represent Greensburg and Kiowa County residents. Dillons and Kwik Shop raised more than $500,000 along with their local media partners to support tragedy-affected families. The Kroger Helping Hands Fund has already supported more than $55,000 in sponsorship and supporter donations to provide Dillons and Kwik Shop workers with urgent relief. Their shops helped the city recreate after the tragedy along with the Salvation Army and the Red Cross.

Krogers Stores and Frito Lay family joined in September 2008 to host a nationwide show event, motivated by the city’s urge to recreate as an environmentally-friendly and prosperous society. Kroger shoppers around the county were encouraged to help in the restoration efforts in Greensburg through this promotion by buying SunChips on daily shopping trips. Frito Lay supported $1 in support of “green” neighborhood reconstruction projects for every bag sold. Overall, $1 million was donated to the restoration efforts at Greensburg done by Kroger and Dillons.
