TABB — One lucky Yorktown resident will not have to worry about groceries for a while.
On Tuesday, July 20, members of Kroger Mid-Atlantic and Kroger Health presented Yorktown resident Claire Clasen with free groceries for a year, as part of the Kroger Co.’s #CommunityImmunity Giveaway.
The prize, worth approximately $13,000, was presented to Clasen at the Kroger location at 5007-2 Victory Blvd. in the Tabb section of York County.
Kroger announced the nationwide giveaway back in June as a way to encourage more Americans to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
The initiative, which ran until July 10, offered customers and associates the opportunity to win big prizes, such as a chance to win one of five $1 million-dollar checks or groceries for a year to 50 lucky winners.
“Not only was #CommunityImmunity a great way for us to motivate people to get out and get the vaccine, but it’s also been a fantastic way to reward our customers and associates,” James Menees, corporate affairs manager for Kroger Mid-Atlantic, said. “Since the beginning of the pandemic, the health and safety of our customers and associates has been our top priority and this remains true today.”
Clasen was the second Virginian to win free groceries for a year from the giveaway. The other winner, a resident of Lynchburg, received the prize back in June.
