Kroger’s Atlanta Division Donates $95K In Gift Cards To Help GA Teachers

Back to school looks a little different this year and so does Kroger’s Annual Teacher Supply Giveaway. Due to challenges presented by COVID-19, Kroger’s Atlanta Division is donating $95,000 in gift cards to help teachers with the purchase of supplies instead of hosting its traditional Teacher Supply Giveaway events.

“Whether teaching in a classroom or virtually, we know that the need for supplies is still critical,” said Felix Turner, manager of corporate affairs for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “Each year, an increasing number of teachers are forced to use their own paycheck to purchase classroom supplies, and this year is no different. We hope the gift cards will provide teachers with additional resources to support the important role they play in our children’s lives.”

In the metro area, gift cards were distributed to school systems in Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Forsyth, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry and Rockdale counties, as well as Atlanta Public Schools. School districts in Bibb, Chatham and Richmond counties also received gift cards.

In the past, Kroger has hosted local Teacher Supply Giveaway events. Teachers are invited to pick out free items for their classrooms, from hand sanitizer to copy paper and markers.

“We will miss the energy and enthusiasm generated by the local events, but are excited about the opportunity to continue Kroger’s support for our teachers,” Turner said.

The Teacher Supply Giveaway aligns with Kroger’s purpose: to feed the human spirit and with the Kroger Community Rewards program, which launched in 2013. The program encourages Kroger’s Atlanta Division customers to direct a portion of their spending to support local organizations that matter to them. Participants include schools, churches, synagogues, animal shelters and youth service organizations. To learn more about Kroger’s Community Rewards program, visit krogercommunityrewards.com.
