Kroger Stores Aim to Keep Locals Warm

Both Tucker locations are participating in Project Overcoat.

This winter, Kroger’s Atlanta Division will team up with WAGA FOX 5, FedEx, United Way, Kiss 104.1FM, and the Atlanta Mission for the 2013 Project Overcoat campaign. From Jan. 5-19, Kroger customers and associates are encouraged to bring new or gently used coats to any Kroger location throughout metro Atlanta.

Tucker has two locations: 4357 Lawrenceville Highway, and 3959 Lavista Road.

“Temperatures are dropping quickly, and our coldest months are still ahead,” says Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger in Atlanta. “We hope that with the help of our customers and associates, we can give coats and blankets to those in need and keep Atlanta warm this winter.”

To participate in this year’s campaign, Kroger shoppers can place their donations in the Project Overcoat bins located at the front of each Kroger store. All donations raised through the 2013 Project Overcoat campaign will be distributed to the United Way and Atlanta Mission. 

For more than 22 years, Project Overcoat has worked to provide thousands of men, women and children with jackets and blankets. To donate, please visit this website.
