Dacula Elementary Receives $1,500 Grant From Kroger
Dacula Elementary School is one of eight Gwinnett County Schools selected to receive a $1,500 grant from Kroger’s Atlanta division. Two Gwinnett County schools -- St. John Neumann Regional Catholic School in Lilburn and W.C. Britt in Snellville -- were awarded $5,000 grants.
The grants, totaling $22,000, were awarded as part of Kroger’s “Earning Plus Learning” program. Schools were invited to demonstrate how they promoted the 2011-2012 theme of “Healthy Living” within their communities. All entries were reviewed by community leaders and the Kroger Community Involvement Team.
“Throughout the years, Kroger’s Earning Plus Learning program has donated millions of dollars to local schools and students,” said Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger’s Atlanta Division in a released statement. “Once again, we are honored to reward these exceptional schools that have worked so hard to set an example in their communities.”
This year, Kroger’s Atlanta division awarded $146,950 in grants to 63 elementary and middle schools as part of the program.
In addition to Dacula Elementary, other $1,500 grant winners included Burnett, Chattahoochee, Grayson, Parsons, Riverside, Walnut Grove and White Oak Elementary schools.
