Kroger’s Atlanta division recently donated $4,000 to local schools as part of its Earning Plus Learning program.

Haw Creek Elementary and Lakeside, Piney Grove and South Forsyth middle schools each received $1,000.

The annual program invited the schools to creatively demonstrate how they stay “active” mentally, physically and within their communities.

Glynn Jenkins, director of communications for Kroger’s Atlanta division, said in a statement that the schools “have really earned these rewards.”

“It is no secret that the education system and families have been negatively affected by the economy, and we hope these funds can at least fill some gaps,” he said.

Earning Plus Learning entries took the form of scrapbooks, photos, videos, essays and newspaper clippings.

All entries were reviewed by a panel of judges made up of local and regional community leaders and the Kroger Community Involvement Team.
