Over the course of the past few weeks, The Salvation Army has shared articles, stories, pictures and videos as to how the Angel Tree operates but one other component of this program is the Food Angel sponsored by Kroger. Customers have the opportunity as they shop for their own family to choose an angel off the tree at their local Kroger and include it in their days purchase. For just $25.00, you can supply a holiday meal, plus some additional basic items for a family or senior that would otherwise find it difficult to provide on their own.
I have been a part of this program for several years now and I can’t express how much it means to each of these families when we hand them their Kroger Food Card compliments of their community. The smiles just light up the room, many give us the tightest hug ever documented, some even dance…yes, they dance!
The Kroger Food Angel is available now at your local Kroger, so I encourage you to make the trip, grab a few items for tonight’s dinner and be sure to choose a family from the many angels that adorn the tree. Trust me….the families thank you from the bottom of their heart!
