Kroger, one of the nation’s largest grocery retailers, has chosen 99Papers.org as one of its education partners. Recently announcing over $2 million in funding to a variety of education-focused organizations, Kroger is committing $25,000 over two years to support public school students through 99Papers.org.
The company’s Double Your Impact initiative will kick off this February to focus on schools in five target cities: Kokomo, South Bend, and Terre Haute, Indiana, and Rockford and Decatur, Illinois. Bob Moeder, President of Kroger’s Central Division, commented, “Strong support of education is an important responsibility for every corporate citizen. Our decision to strengthen historical support of education, going back more than 100 years, is motivated by two priorities: improving the educational opportunities available to our children and building the best possible workforce for our future.”
We are thrilled to have Kroger’s support and look forward to serving students through their DYI funding!
