Kroger conducted a school supply campaign in August, which benefitted students at West Orange – Stark Elementary. Customers were able to purchase prepackaged school supply kits for elementary students or make a monetary contribution towards the purchase of supplies.

The 16th Street Kroger store raised more than $1,500 in prepackaged supply kits, as well as loose supply items.

West Orange – Stark Elementary Principal Glenetta Henley accepted the school supplies on behalf of her campus.

Henley said, “The staff and students of West-Orange Stark Elementary School would like to thank Kroger for their generous donations of school supplies to our little Mustangs!  We could not be successful in educating our children without the support of our community.  It truly does take a village to raise a child, and we thank Kroger for being a part of that effort.”
