Kroger, closing in a few weeks, hosts last "Souper Bowl of Caring"
BROWNWOOD, Texas —
With Brownwood's Kroger location closing in early March, the store is making sure it leaves an impact on the community by participating in a fundraiser for the hungry.
The supermarket is taking part in the "Souper Bowl of Caring", with all food donations going to Good Samaritan Ministries, according to the store's manager.
He said they set a goal of raising $20,000 for the nonprofit and since it began on Wednesday, they've raised $1,200.
People have until midnight on Super Bowl Sunday to donate to the fundraising effort.
The store's manager said they're on pace to reach the $20,000 benchmark they've set for the fundraiser.
