Giving Back with the Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program
Well, there is with the Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program!
Not only does this program help out local non-profits, but it also helps to reduce single-use plastics. So you can feel good about doing your part for the environment while supporting a worthy cause.
How the Program Works
Every time you purchase a special reusable bag for $2.99, a local non-profit will receive a donation of $1. The benefiting organization is selected by local Winn-Dixie store leadership, and this program offers a way for shoppers to give back as part of the regular weekly routine.
During October, the benefiting organization is Beyond Basic Needs, so you can feel good knowing that your purchase will go towards supporting a worthy cause.
Why You Should Participate
The Community Bag Program is a great way to give back to your community while getting a reusable bag for yourself.
For every Community Bag purchased, Winn-Dixie will donate money to local nonprofits. Not only does this program help others, but it also helps the environment by reducing the number of plastic bags used each year.
If you’re looking for a way to give back and be more environmentally friendly, consider buying a Community Bag the next time you’re at Winn-Dixie.
It’s a win-win!
Give back today with the Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program; visit Winn-Dixie at 3905 A1A South, St. Augustine, FL, and help us reach our goal of providing hope to cancer warriors undergoing chemo.
