FULFILLING THE DONATION
Recently, Kroger Grocery Stores donated $250 in gift cards to be distributed to families in South LA residential programs at Upward Bound House so they can purchase food or some dresses for the holidays. Their donation not only gave these families food to eat, but made their holidays’ more meaningful as they got to celebrate together with a meal. We stand by Kroger’s plans to become a Zero Waste company and are appreciative to be granted such an important donation. Their generosity will always be remembered as we look forward to feeding more families experiencing homelessness across Los Angeles County.
