P.O Box 600921, 77260, 529-8947. 521-0114 Letters to the Voice From the readers of the Montrose Voice ^Kroger's Community Spirit From John Paul Barnich, Vice President for Social Services. AIDS Foundation Houston. Inc. I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the management and staff of Kroger at 3300 Montrose Boulevard for their generosity, compassion, and community spirit. In late September, I happened to be in Walgreens pharmacy on Montrose. I noticed several people waiting for prescriptions whom I recognized as clients of the AIDS Foundation Houston. It occurred to me that, given that a number of drug stores offer discounts to select groups—senior citizens, etc.—and given that a large percentage of the patrons of that Walgreens is gay, and given the quantity of prescriptions and the staggering expense of many AIDS medications. Walgreens might consider offering a discount to persons with AIDS/ARC. I approached Walgreens with the idea and went through their chain of command. I was finally told that Walgreens was a conservative company and was not interested in my proposal. I next went to Kroger and made the same proposal to Mr. Tom Schnoor. the pharmacy manager. Mr. Schnoor could not have been more helpful. First, he agreed to give all clients of AFH a 10 percent discount over and above any discount coupons offered by the pharmacy itself In addition, he put me in touch with a generic drug company which is now donating vitamins and other generic drugs to the AFH Food Bank. Lastly, he introduced me to Mr. Marty Payne, the store manager, and this resulted in a sizable weekly donation to our food bank. In discussing this with our volunteer director, I was informed that another Kroger store (on Braeswood) furnishes food trays for our AFH training weekends. I would like to commend the Kroger organization on behalf of the AIDS Foundation Houston and our clients. I would also urge the gay community to express its gratitude both verbally and with its patronage.
