Furthermore, they said “Texas is resilient and has withstood many storms – and has been stronger each time,” said Rodney McMullen, Chairman and CEO of Kroger. “Kroger has been there to support Texas every time, always focusing on ensuring that our partners and our communities have the resources they need to rebuild. I am especially grateful to our Dallas and Houston store, distribution center, manufacturing, pharmacy, and office teams who have worked tirelessly throughout the past two weeks to raise the level of our partners, clients and communities. ”
While, Kroger made it easy for customers to support relief efforts by providing an option to donate at checkout in Dallas-Fort Worth and Greater Houston stores, benefiting from the American Red Cross, which is supported annually by the Kroger Co. Customers can donate for in-store donations until the end of March. The Kroger Co also allocated $ 190,000 to Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson’s Disaster Relief Fund and $ 180,000 to the Houston Harris County Winter Storm Relief Fund, established by Mayor Sylvester Turner and Harris County Judge Lena Hidalgo. Kroger also continues to partner with additional Texas cities to provide critical recovery resources.
