INDIANA (Fort Wayne's NBC) - Kroger Health is pushing Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine by providing customers the opportunity to win prizes.
On Thursday, Kroger Health launched #CommunityImmunity Giveaway. This contest will provide customers and Kroger Family of Companies associates the opportunity to win life-changing prizes like one of five $1 million checks or one of 50 “groceries for a year.”
From June 3 through July 10, customers will be chosen every week.
According to organizers, this giveaway was organized to support the Biden Administration’s national effort to have at least 70% of U.S. adults receive their first COVID-19 vaccine dose by July 4.
“Since day one of this pandemic, Kroger’s most urgent priority has been the health and safety of our associates, customers, and communities. Kroger’s #CommunityImmunity Giveaway is designed to inspire more adults to get vaccinated and help our area recover and move ahead.”Colleen Juergensen, president of Kroger Central Division
