NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Little Clinic, located in select Kroger, King Soopers and Fry’s Food Stores, has announced that, through sports physicals provided at the clinics, it is supporting U.S. troops through a special donation program with the USO.
“We already offer a convenient, affordable sports physical for parents who have children playing fall sports. Now we have an easy way for them to support a very good cause at no additional cost,” stated Michael Stoll, CEO of The Little Clinic. Students are required to obtain a physical to play such fall sports as football, cross-country, hockey, soccer and others.
This year, The Little Clinic is donating $10,000 to the USO.
“We are reminded that our children are able to play freely in their sports uniforms because of the men and women who are putting on their military uniforms to protect our freedom,” Stoll added. “This is one small way we can support our troops in service and their families.”
The Little Clinic, a subsidiary Kroger, is partnering with the USO in a special yearlong campaign with the goal of raising $1 million to support U.S. troops. Kroger raised $400,000 for the USO in 2010.
