The extraordinary efforts of associates at the Stonebridge Crossing Kroger during COVID-19 have been noticed by Lakeland residents.

They are recognizing the grocery staff with a banner sign and pizza for everyone at the store next week.

Come by the Nutrition Spot, 2961 Canada Rd. in the Corner Shops at U.S. Highway 64, to sign the banner and donate cash toward the pizza which will be served to about 200 Kroger employees May 2nd.  Deadline to sign and donate is Friday, May 1st.

Resident Elisha Hoskins suggested the idea to recognize the workers at the Kroger closest to Lakeland which is frequented by many Lakeland residents.  It is located at 9025 U.S. Highway 64.  The team leader/manager at the grocery is Lakeland resident Tim Roberts.

“So many people go unrecognized,” said Mrs. Hoskins.  “The associates at Kroger are really looking out for us. They are working so hard cleaning every cart, sanitizing everywhere. The response is impressive.”

Monica Pitts, another resident participating in the recognition effort, said, “Lakeland residents would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to the employees at Kroger for all their hard work while we are in the middle of this pandemic.”

Lakeland residents Shanda Bearden and Amy Foster own The Spot and were approached for the location to be a signing and donation point.  “We agreed to allow one person inside at a time to sign and donate because we believe strongly in supporting the community.”
