December’s Season of Celebrations & Sharing: Kroger Partners with Shared Harvest Foodbanks
Maybe you've noticed the little tags at the Kroger checkout. Little colored rectangles with $1, $3 and $5 on them and the words Shared Harvest, but didn't know what it was about?
Well today we're going to clear up any questions! Kroger has teamed with Shared Harvest to make it easy for you to donate to this large area supplier of Food Banks & Pantries. Pull a tag (or more) in the donation total you want, the cashier scans the tags and a donation is set up for Shared Harvest by adding the sum to your checkout total.
Now WHY Shared Harvest? As you probably know, during tough economic times, not everyone is making ends meet, and sometimes there's just not enough food to fill the table for the family. Shared Harvest helps meet this need. Shared Harvest collects and distributes to over 100+ food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in Warren, Butler, Preble, Darke and Miami Counties. From these centers, the food gets out to those in need.
Additionally, Shared Harvest distributes 35 pound boxes of food to over 1900 senior citizens each month. They also distribute child-friendly nutritious food to 2100 Butler and Warren Country elementary students identified at risk. Have you seen anything about Shared Harvest that ISN'T to like? We didn't think so! :) And with 28 years of service, they've got a track record of getting the job done!
So if Kroger isn't you're preferred grocery and you'd still like to help, call Shared Harvest at 1.800.352.3663 or visit their website www.SharedHarvest.org!
We appreciate your support for another great charity helping our local residents in need! Chip in 1, 3, 5, whatever works for you, Shared Harvest will put it to great use!
