KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In the wake of the destruction left by the storms on Monday, March 6th and the massive fire in Overland Park on Monday, March 20, Price Chopper is partnering with FOX 4 and the American Red Cross of Greater Kansas City to collect donations for families whose homes were damaged or destroyed by the severe weather and fire.

Donations will be collected at all 51 Greater Kansas City Price Choppers and St. Joseph, Mo. at the checkout registers Saturday, March 11 through Sunday, April 1st. (Extended from Friday, March 24th.) Shoppers may donate $1, $5, $10 or any multiples of those amounts. Receipts will be printed for tax purposes.

“More than a dozen families in Overland Park have been displaced from the fires yesterday afternoon. Donations will be accepted at 51 area Price Chopper locations, on behalf of the American Red Cross, as they offer relief to the recent victims of tornadoes and now our neighbors in Overland Park affected by the fires on Tuesday afternoon.”
