Calhoun Times - - OPINION/COMMENT - Staff Re­ports

At­lanta-area Kroger stores will soon be filled with “Mir­a­cle Bal­loons” for the an­nual fundraiser ben­e­fit­ting Chil­dren’s Health­care of At­lanta – a mem­ber hos­pi­tal of the Chil­dren’s Mir­a­cle Net­work (CMN).

From May 15 - 28, cus­tomers in the At­lanta Di­vi­sion, which in­cludes stores in Ge­or­gia, South Carolina and East­ern Alabama, can pur­chase $1 Mir­a­cle Bal­loon icons at check­out to help Kroger reach its goal of rais­ing $275,000 to sup­port their lo­cal chil­dren’s hos­pi­tals.

“Each year, Kroger looks for­ward to the Chil­dren’s Mir­a­cle Net­work fundraiser, which al­lows our cus­tomers and as­so­ciates to di­rectly help chil­dren liv­ing in our com­mu­nity,” says Glynn Jenk­ins, pub­lic re­la­tions di­rec­tor for Kroger’s At­lanta Di­vi­sion. “With the help of our cus­tomers, CMN will be able to pro­vide even more mir­a­cles in 2016 and be­yond.”

CMN, one of the world’s lead­ing chil­dren’s char­i­ties, is a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion that raises money for more than 170 hos­pi­tals na­tion­wide, af­fect­ing the lives of more chil­dren than any other or­ga­ni­za­tion in the world. Do­na­tions to CMN help pro­vide re­search and train­ing, pur­chase equip­ment and pay for un­com­pen­sated care all in sup­port of their mis­sion to save and im­prove the lives of mil­lions of chil­dren ev­ery year.
