Winn-Dixie Donates to Warriors
Every cent Winn-Dixie earned on Independence Day will go straight to our veterans.
Southern Grocers partnered with Hope for the Warriors, an organization providing support programs for the men and women who fought for our country. Last year, the food company raised three million dollars for wounded veterans.
Winn-Dixie officials tell News 25 they want to stress the real meaning behind the Fourth of July holiday. Store Manager Michael Moore said, “It’s important. They fought so hard and sacrificed so much for us to be able to celebrate these holidays. We’re truly grateful for what they’ve done for our country. This is our way of repaying them and supporting those that fought for our country.”
In 2015, Hope for the Warriors provided more than $300,000 in temporary financial assistance to 264 eligible military families.
