Kroger customers ‘Round-Up’ more than $231,000 for U.S. troops

AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

Kroger is wrapping up its 'round-up' program with over $231,000 in donations.

The program works by asking customers to round up their purchase total at checkout. All the proceeds go to support military service men and women through the United Services Organization. A large portion of the donations were from the Kroger store on Whiskey Road in Aiken. Management says that each individual donation becomes part of the larger picture.

"It's what our customers are giving to them," says Dabeney Epperley, co-manager. "It's just a little piece that can help somebody that's injured, or somebody that just needs a little bit more."
