Store Donates All 4th Of July Proceeds To Wounded Warrior Project
The grocery store Winn-Dixie announced something special they will do to celebrate the 4th of July. Any profits made at its grocery stores will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project's Independence Program.
The Independence Program helps warriors who rely on their families and friends for support due to injuries they have suffered to the brain or spinal cord plus other neurological conditions.
“We believe we all have a responsibility to care and contribute to the lives of those who have served and sacrificed for the nation, which is why we are committing every cent of every dollar of profit generated this Independence Day across all of our Winn-Dixie stores to help support the Wounded Warrior Project’s Independence Program,” said Ian McLeod, CEO and president of Southeastern Grocers, parent company of BI-LO, Harveys and Winn-Dixie grocery stores.. “We felt it is the right thing to do, and our associates do, too.”
“Continuing our work with Winn-Dixie in the spirit of supporting our lifelong commitment to serving our nation’s veterans is exciting,” stated Steven Nardizzi, CEO of Wounded Warrior Project. “Dedication to our injured service members is evident in the sincere efforts of companies like Winn-Dixie, and the support we will be receiving from them is vital to our mission to honor and empower our Wounded Warriors, and Independence Day is the perfect time to celebrate.”
