Francine's Friends Receives $1,000 Donation from Kroger

Francine's Friends board members were on hand for the grand opening of the newly remodeled and expanded Kroger Store at St. Joe and Maplecrest on November 4th. Along with assisting with the ribbon-cutting, they were presented with a check for $1,000. "We are so appreciative that they thought to make us one of their charities of choice and were very excited to accept the donation!" exclaimed board president Sharon Simmons. "We also want to thank Janet Detmer of Kroger specifically for being so good to work with," continued Debi Kennedy, community outreach coordinator.

The coach has been to many of the local Kroger sites throughout the year, and all expressed mutual appreciation for the support of the program and how much Kroger values Francine's Friends and their relationship with us. Thank you, Kroger's!
