Kroger Delivery to Hurley Comes From the Heart: Valentine’s Day Balloon Drop
Flint, Michigan – Employees from Kroger will once again make a special delivery on Valentine’s Day. Starting at 10 a.m. on February 14th, Kroger employees will deliver 400 balloons to Hurley Children’s Hospital and other areas of the hospital.
Kroger’s Heart to Heart Program started eight years ago to help spread a little cheer on Valentine’s Day. Customers can donate $1 or $3 at the checkout lanes at 11 Flint-area Kroger stores through February 14th. For every donation received, Kroger will make a donation directly to patients at Hurley Children’s Hospital. Last year, Kroger received more than $2,000 in donations for Hurley. This year, Kroger hopes to provide an even larger donation, thanks to the generous donations of shoppers.
