“With our coldest months still ahead and high unemployment rates, more metro residents will be in need of coats and blankets than ever before,” says Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “This year, Kroger’s Atlanta Division has set out to collect 25,000 coats and blankets, and with the help of our customers and partners, we know we can help keep our friends and neighbors warm.”
To participate, metro Atlantans can place donations in the Project Overcoat bins located at the front of each Kroger store. All donations raised through the 2012 Project Overcoat campaign will be distributed to the United Way and Atlanta Mission, formally known as Atlanta Union Mission.
