The Salvation Army Receives $10,000 from Witron on Behalf of The Kroger

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Salvation Army announced Tuesday that it recently received a $10,000 contribution to support Emergency Assistance needs throughout Greater Cincinnati. The donation was given by Witron, an international manufacturer of logistics systems, and provided to The Salvation Army on behalf of The Kroger Company.

"This contribution is a wonderful blessing to our local assistance program," stated Matt Pearce, Divisional Development Director at The Salvation Army. "We witnessed a 15% increase in need for Emergency Assistance in 2010 over the prior year, serving nearly 12,000 individuals.

Meeting this greater need required an additional $45,000 last year, so a $10,000 donation goes a long way to helping serve our neighbors with these basic needs." The Emergency Assistance program at The Salvation Army provides those in need with rent, utilities, food, clothing and transportation assistance.

"The Kroger Company is delighted to serve the local community by directing this gift to The Salvation Army," stated Rachael Betzler, Regional Advertising Manager at Kroger, and a member of The Salvation Army's Advisory Board. "Kroger has been a long-standing partner in The Salvation Army's mission, and this is yet another way that we are able to provide support at a time of critical need. We're grateful to Witron for their donation, and the opportunity they provide Kroger to support the local community with these funds."
