SAVANNAHA — Area Kroger stores will soon be filled with "Miracle Balloons" for the grocer’s annual fundraiser benefitting The Children’s Hospital at Memorial University Medical Center — a member hospital of the Children’s Miracle Network.
From today through May 28, customers in the Atlanta Division, which includes stores in Georgia, South Carolina and Eastern Alabama, can purchase $1 Miracle Balloon icons at checkout to help Kroger reach its goal of raising $275,000 to support the children’s hospitals.
"Each year, Kroger looks forward to the Children’s Miracle Network fundraiser, which allows our customers and associates to directly help children living in our community," says Glynn Jenkins, public relations director for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. "With the help of our customers, CMN will be able to provide even more miracles in 2016 and beyond."
CMN, one of the world’s leading children’s charities, is a nonprofit organization that raises money for more than 170 hospitals nationwide, affecting the lives of more children than any other organization in the world. Donations to CMN help provide research and training, purchase equipment and pay for uncompensated care all in support of their mission to save and improve the lives of millions of children every year.
