Kroger delivers hundreds of balloons to Hurley patients

Posted: Updated:

(02/14/13) - Patients at Hurley Medical Center and Children's Hospital in Flint received quite the pick-me-up Thursday morning.

Kroger employees delivered more than 400 balloons, all part of a big Valentine's Day Balloon Drop.

Kroger's Heart to Heart program started 8 years ago as a way to help spread a little cheer on Valentine's Day.

"Anything we can do to help out, that's what we're here to do, and when you look at 400 bright balloons going out to 400 patients today, and raising their spirits today, that's what it's really all about," said Jonathan Young, of Kroger.

Customers can make donations to Hurley Children's Hospital at Kroger checkout lanes Thursday.

Last year's Valentine's Day drive brought in more than $2,000.
