JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Winn-Dixie Foundation last week announced it is investing $1.5 million in neighborhoods across the Southeast through partnerships with 123 nonprofit organizations, providing a broad range of services.
“Winn Dixie is not only committed to serving our communities as a business and employer, but to do our part to make our communities stronger,” stated Mary Kellmanson, marketing SVP of Winn-Dixie Stores and president of the Winn-Dixie Foundation. “We are truly honored to be able to support so many organizations and the dedicated people within them. We are awed each year at the inspiring stories of courage and triumph shared by these organizations.”
By providing grants to programs that feed the hungry, assist women and children in need, help the sick, and address inequalities in education and health, the Winn-Dixie Foundation touches neighbors in five states across the Southeast.
Last year, the Winn-Dixie Foundation helped fund 112 programs benefiting people who need a helping hand, including neighborhoods in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi.
