Fund created for victims and survivors of Roundy’s distribution center shooting

Roundy’s distribution center in Oconomowoc.

The Kroger Co. Foundation has contributed $1 million to seed a fund for the victims and survivors of the recent deadly shooting at Roundy’s Oconomowoc distribution center.

The fund will provide financial assistance to the families of those who were killed, and individuals injured or suffering psychological trauma from the workplace shooting.

On March 16, an employee shot and killed two workers, Kevin Schneider and Kevin Kloth, at the distribution center at 1111 Delafield Road in Oconomowoc. The suspected shooter then died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound following a pursuit by police in Milwaukee.

“The entire Roundy’s family continues to mourn the loss of those who were victims of this tragedy,” said Michael Marx, President of the Roundy’s Division of The Kroger Co. “We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from our friends in Wisconsin and Illinois, and we thank everyone for their incredible kindness.”

Customers of Pick ‘n Save, Metro Market and Mariano’s stores can donate to the fund at the GoFundMe page or text to give at 243725 – keyword: RoundysStrong. The National Compassion Fund will administer the fund.
