The honor is given to corporations that have provided $1 million or more to the American Cancer Society during the previous calendar year through a variety of support activities.
Kroger's award is based on the company's support of the American Cancer Society's “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” and “Relay for Life” events across the country.
"Each year, thousands of Kroger associates commit their energy, time and funds to fight cancer in their communities," said Lynn Marmer, Kroger's group vice president for corporate affairs, in a statement. "We're so proud to accept this award that recognizes the contribution of each and every ‘Making Strides’ and ‘Relay for Life’ team in the Kroger family."
