Kroger presents a $10,000 check to The Salvation Army

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati/Dayton Division of Kroger presented a $10,000 check to The Salvation Army of Cincinnati on Tuesday. The money is a contribution to The Salvation Army's Christmas and Emergency Assistance programs.

"Benevolent opportunities available to us through our generous suppliers, such as this one, allow us to offer much needed support to this invaluable organization," said Rachael Betzler, Public Relations Manager of Kroger's Cincinnati/Dayton Division. "The Salvation Army assists more than 65,000 individuals in our neighborhoods each year. This $10,000.00 will help ensure the continuation of these programs, which include youth development and child care, senior services, housing programs, and other vital services for our area."

The Salvation Army is grateful for the contribution to one of their local programs.

"This contribution is a wonderful blessing to our local assistance programs," stated Matt Pearce, Divisional Development Director at The Salvation Army.  "Over the past several years, we've continued to experience an elevated level of need in our local community.  Many families are struggling to get by, and need help with basic items, as well as with rent or utilities.  And at this time of year, the only means many families have to share Christmas joy is through the various Christmas Assistance programs offered by The Salvation Army."

The Salvation Army served more than 11,000 individuals, including more than 8,000 children, through the Adopt-a-Family and Toy Shop programs in Hamilton County this year.
