Southeastern Grocers, Inc. (SEG), parent company and home of BI-LO, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, announces the launch of a six-week community donation program to benefit Folds of Honor. The grocer is committed to supporting Folds of Honor’s mission to provide educational scholarships to the children and spouses impacted by a loved one’s sacrifice for the United States military.
Now through the Fourth of July, Winn-Dixie customers in the Panhandle-area can honor America’s heroes and their families by rounding up their total grocery bill to the nearest dollar at check out. Every cent donated to Folds of Honor helps provide a brighter future for the legacies of fallen and disabled service members through education.
Since 2007, Folds of Honor has awarded nearly 20,000 educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members. Last year alone, Folds of Honor awarded 4,000 educational scholarships throughout the United States, including more than 1,300 scholarships within the seven states Southeastern Grocers serves, but the need is still great; 700 eligible and qualified applicants throughout the United States went unfunded in 2018.
