Kroger Accepts Donations for Haiti
In this handout image provided by the United Nations, a Haitian boy receives treatment at an ad hoc medical clinic at United Nations Stabilization Mission In Haiti's (MINUSTAH) logistics base after an earthquake measuring 7.0 rocked the Haitian capital just before 5 pm yesterday, on January 13, 2010 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Much of Port-au-Prince was reduced to rubble by the quake on January 12, but the airport was operational, opening the way for international relief aid to be ferried in by air as well as by sea.
NBC 5 has teamed up with North Texas Krogers to provide yet another outlet for those wanting to help with the relief efforts in earthquake ravaged Haiti.
Kroger will be accepting donations at coin boxes located at each checkout stand at every Kroger store in Dallas-Fort Worth.
Donations will go to the American Red Cross International Response Fund to help the people of Haiti.
Customers are urged to drop their loose change or cash. Kroger will also accept checks made out to the Red Cross, just be sure you specify that you want the money to go to Haiti Relief on the check.
You can make a contribution to the Red Cross by calling 1-800-RED CROSS, visit RedCross.org or text "Haiti" to 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross International Relief Fund.
