Kroger’s Atlanta Division, which has several stores in Cobb County, announced that it will donate 40 pallets of assorted apparel, shoes, accessories and more to Goodwill of North Georgia in honor of the organization’s 90th birthday celebration.

Kroger will present the donation at the Goodwill headquarters, at 2201 Lawrenceville Highway in Decatur, on Thurdsay at 10 a.m. 

“Kroger is proud to partner with Goodwill of North Georgia through this donation,” said Glynn Jenkins, public relations director for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “We’re excited to celebrate 90 years of an exceptional organization that works hard to provide Georgia’s families with the tools they need to support themselves and their families.”

“Donations are critical to our success at Goodwill. We are honored to be the recipient of such a generous gift, and we commend Kroger for supporting our efforts to connect North Georgians to jobs,” said Elaine Armstrong, vice president of marketing for Goodwill. “These items will not only help fill the shelves of Goodwill stores across the region, but they will become the catalyst for helping thousands of job seekers find work.”

Founded in Atlanta in 1925 by a group of local citizens, Goodwill provides job training and employment services to people who are struggling to find work, want to change careers or start their own business. The organization sells donated clothing, books, furniture and household goods in stores across North Georgia, with the proceeds funding their mission of putting people to work.
