Last month, UFCW Local 1000 spent several days checking in with Kroger stores in the affected area where tornadoes struck to make sure members and their families were safe. So far in Texas, nine members were impacted with serious tornado damage to their homes or apartments. Their stories are heartbreaking and it’s amazing that they and all of their families survived these tornadoes safely. The EF-4 tornado in Garland, Texas, came within a mile of hitting Kroger #403, which could have resulted in serious loss of life. UFCW Local 1000 delivered financial assistance to help members through this tough time.
