As part of Kroger’s #CommunityImmunity Giveaway, members of Kroger Mid-Atlantic and Kroger Health, the healthcare division of The Kroger Co., presented Stacey Blizzard of Henrico with free groceries for a year, a prize worth approximately $13,000.

The #CommunityImmunity Giveaway initially was announced by the grocer in June as a way to motivate more Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine to better protect communities across America. The program provided customers and associates with the opportunity to win life-changing prizes, including a chance to win one of five $1 million-dollar checks or groceries for a year to 50 lucky winners. The program culminated in July.

“The #CommunityImmunity Giveaway is a great way for us to motivate people to get the vaccine, and it’s also been a fantastic way to reward our customers and associates,” said Lori Raya, president of Kroger Mid-Atlantic. “The health and safety of everyone we welcome in our stores is our top priority and we’re passionate about doing our part to protect our communities.”

Blizzard is the third Virginian to receive free groceries for a year as a part of the giveaway. Jesse Hamlette, a Kroger associate at Westover Dairy, in Lynchburg, Va. was the first recipient in June and Claire Clasen, a Kroger customer, from Yorktown, Va. received the second groceries for a year prize in July.

The award presentation took place at the Short Pump store at 11895 West Broad Street in Henrico.
