The Kroger family of stores gives back to our communities through corporate charitable donations and the work of our two philanthropic foundations. In 2020, total giving of more than $300 million provided much-needed food and funds at the national, regional, and local levels during an incredibly challenging year. Kroger’s corporate charitable donations provide cash and in-kind giving for nonprofit organizations and causes that our associates, customers and communities care most about.

Ohio Laborers are the first construction workforce on the job, and the last ones to leave. Its over 15,000 active Union members stand for safety and quality work, fair wages, quality insurance, life-long training, and a dignified retirement.
