On Saturday, July 4th Winn-Dixie will donate all of its profits to the Wounded Warrior Foundation Independence Program.
The WWF Independence Program is one dedicated to creating plans and goals to help wounded vets who have to rely on friends and family for financial assistance.
This is an extremely worthwhile program to help vets with limited mobility find means to provide.
Here is what the CEO of Winn-Dixie’s parent company had to say:
“While we recognize on Memorial Day those soldiers who paid the supreme sacrifice and give thanks to those who have served on Veterans Day, the sacrifice and needs of those who are severely injured visibly or invisibly is not necessarily fully understood. I am honoured that we are running this program and am thankful to the military men and women and their families for their service and sacrifice.”
If you’re out and about on Saturday for some last minute items, make sure to pick them up at Winn-Dixie.
TALLAHASSEE – Winn-Dixie today announced that on Saturday, July 4, all profits generated at its grocery stores will be donated in support of Wounded Warrior Project’s Independence Program.
The Independence Program is designed to help warriors who need to rely on their families and friends for support due to injuries they have suffered, such as brain injury, spinal-cord injury, or other neurological conditions. Individualized plans are created with goals to provide a future with purpose at no cost to the warriors or their support teams.
“Winn-Dixie operates in states with some of the highest Active Duty military populations in the United States,” said Ian McLeod, CEO and president of Southeastern Grocers, parent company of BI-LO, Harveys and Winn-Dixie grocery stores.
