To sweeten its current community donation program for Folds of Honor, Southeastern Grocers, the parent company of Winn-Dixie and Fresco y Mas, together with the SEG Gives Foundation, is doubling down on customer donations with a Military Monday matching commitment up to $300,000.
Each Monday through July 4, the grocer’s charitable arm will match all weekend in-store donations, up to $100,000. Donations were matched on June 20, and will be matched twice more June 27 and July 4, for a possible total match of $300,000.
Customers can support by visiting their local Winn-Dixie or Fresco y Mas store and simply donating $1, $5 or by rounding up their total grocery bill to the nearest dollar at checkout, and their weekend donation will automatically be doubled.
By doubling down on all in-store Folds of Honor donations with a matching commitment, the grocer is paying it forward to the legacies of the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice with their service to our country.
