Kroger announced it will match customer donations for area tornado victims up to $50,000, and is mounting a collection drive for displaced families and relief workers.
All of the money will be handed over to the American Red Cross, the grocer said Thursday.
Most-needed are non-perishable food; toiletries; infant clothing; cleaning supplies; tools; shovels; brooms; plastic tubes; work gloves; rubber boots; ice chests and bottled water. All collected items will benefit efforts in Arlington, Lancaster and Forney.
Tarrant Country stores with collection sites are at 5701 W. Pleasant Ridge, Arlington, and 6650 N. Beach at Western Center Blvd., Ft. Worth.
