NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Kroger announced Monday they raised over $139,000 in their stores to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
The funds came after customers and associates purchased either $1 or $5 shamrock-shaped pins between Feb. 14 and March 12.
The final check was presented to the MDA of Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky at the annual Muscle Walk at Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville this past weekend.
“We are so pleased to be able to contribute these dollars to help support the work of MDA,” said Melissa Eads, marketing and public relations manager for Kroger’s Nashville Division. “Our associates and customers really responded to this year’s campaign, as this cause really resonates with so many.”
“Kroger remains one of the largest supporters of MDA’s effort to provide much needed services and potentially lifesaving research to local families living in Middle Tennessee,” said Ashley Davis, Executive Director of MDA of Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky.
