Atlanta, Ga. — Kroger’s Atlanta Division customers surpassed the grocer’s $275,000 fundraising goal and donated $300,000 from March 17-30 to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

The annual fundraiser encouraged Kroger customers to purchase $1 or $5 shamrocks to help MDA send young patients to summer camps and provide comprehensive health care, medical equipment, wheelchair repair, support services and clinics to those affected by the 43 different forms of neuromuscular diseases.

Kroger-Atlanta Division has supported MDA for the last 13 years.

The funds raised through the annual campaign go towardresearch and local support programs including summer camp for kids with Muscular Dystrophy.

“Kroger remains one of the largest supporters of MDA’s efforts to provide much needed services and potentially life saving research to local families living with Muscular Dystrophy” said Sabrina Hughes, divisional director of MDA’s East Central States Division.

“Kroger associates and their customer’s continue to provide help and hope to children and adults with muscle disease and everyone involved really responded to this year’s campaign, even in these tough economic conditions.”
