Dillons and United Way of the Plains are partnering together to provide communities across the state opportunities to help victims impacted by the April 29 tornado that tore through Andover, KS. Through May 21 the Kroger based grocery store is inviting their customers to round up the final total of their order or give monetary donation of $1, $5, or $10, when they are done with their shopping, at the register. 100% of the funds will go to help and aid those impacted in Andover. The funds will be used to rebuild and recover buildings and homes that were damaged or destroyed by the storm. 

According to KAKE the funds will be through Kroger’s Zero Hunger Zero Waste Foundation and shared with United Way of the Plains. “Dillons is donating $50,000 to aid those impacted by the tornado in the Andover community”. 

“The caring power of this community is very evident when disasters strike. We’ve seen a wonderful response from area citizens, elected officials, nonprofits, and companies like Dillons. This check and other financial support offered by Dillons is imperative so that we can help our neighbors recover and rebuild. Our thanks to the leadership at Dillons, all the employees, and customers who are donating to this cause and are committed to their communities,” Said Pete Najera, President CEO of United Way of the Plains.
