Southeastern Grocers is doing its part to help those affected by Hurricane Florence.

The Jacksonville, Fla.-based retailer announced that in partnership with its Southeastern Grocers Foundation, it would be providing customers and associates with various ways to help those affected by the hurricane.

“At Southeastern Grocers, our associates, customers and communities we serve can always count on us to provide for them in their time of need,” Anthony Hucker, president and CEO of Southeastern Grocers, said. “In an effort to proactively aide our customers, we are launching a community donation program, together with the Southeastern Grocers Gives Foundation, in support of the American Red Cross’ Disaster Relief to assist those impacted by Hurricane Florence.”

From now until Sept. 25, shoppers can make a donation at any of the retailer’s locations including Bi-Lo, Fresco y Más, Harveys and Winn-Dixie, during checkout as well as online.

“Southeastern Grocers has a long-standing relationship with the American Red Cross, beginning with its more than 55-year partnership with Winn-Dixie,” Anna Trefethen, American Red Cross vice president of Humanitarian Services, Southeast and Caribbean Division, said. “Through the generous support of partners like Southeastern Grocers, the American Red Cross is able to meet the emergency needs of the community today and in the future during time of natural devastation.”

Every cent raised will go to the American Red Cross’ Disaster Relief, which enables the organization to prepare, respond and help those affected by this disaster and others, the company said.
