Kroger aims to keep Atlanta warm

ATLANTA -- Trough Jan. 19, Kroger customers and associates are encouraged to bring new or gently used coats to any Kroger location throughout metro Atlanta.

"Temperatures are dropping quickly, and our coldest months are still ahead," said Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger's Atlanta Division. "We hope that with the help of our customers and associates, we can give coats and blankets to those in need and keep Atlanta warm this winter."

To participate, Kroger shoppers can place their donations in the Project Overcoat bins located at the front of each store. All donations raised through the 2013 Project Overcoat campaign will be distributed to the United Way and Atlanta Mission.

For more than 22 years, Project Overcoat has worked to provide thousands of men, women and children with jackets and blankets. To donate, visit www.kroger.com to find the nearest Kroger store.
