Kroger to Give Away More Than $96,000 in Classroom Supplies at ‘Earning Plus Learning’ Event
Kroger’s Atlanta Division is showing support for Atlanta-area teachers by giving away classroom supplies valued at more than $96,000 as part of the grocer’s 2012-2013 “Earning Plus Learning” program. On Thursday, Aug. 2, educators with a valid Georgia teacher ID can go to one of two Atlanta-area giveaway locations to receive up to $40 in free school supplies.
Classroom supplies include, but are not limited to:
- Copy paper
- Construction paper
- Scotch tape
- Disinfectant wipes
- Sandwich bags
Teachers will receive items on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.
“Each year, an increasing number of teachers are forced to use their own paycheck to purchase classroom supplies,” says Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “Kroger is committed to education, and making sure our teachers have the tools they need to successfully educate our children is an essential step in this effort.”
Kroger’s “Earning Plus Learning” program contributes up to $500,000 to elementary and middle schools each year. To learn more about Kroger’s “Earning Plus Learning” program, please visit www.krogerearningpluslearning.com
