This year, local community non-profits are more in need of support than in any other time in the recent years’ past. Now shoppers can give back to the local community and help to reduce single-use plastics by purchasing a special reusable bag at Winn-Dixie. Friends of the Washington Parish Library has been selected by local Winn-Dixie store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program for the month of June.
The Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program is designed to give back to the local community with every reusable bag purchased. Every $2.99 reusable Community Bag sold supports a non-profit local to the store in which it was purchased. This program offers a way for shoppers to give back as part of the regular weekly routine.
Every month, at every Winn-Dixie location a different local non-profit is selected to benefit from the sale of these special reusable Community Bags. Friends of the Washington Parish Library was selected as the June beneficiary by local store leadership at the store located at Washington Street in Franklinton. Friends of the Washington Parish Library will receive a $1 donation for every $2.99 reusable Community Bag purchased at this location in June.
“The Library deeply appreciates the support of the Friends of the Washington Parish Library, as well as the support we get from our community,” said Sonnet Ireland, director of the Washington Parish Library. “Initiatives like the Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program really make a difference.”
