Winn-Dixie has launched the first PAWS "Feed the Love" Community Donation Program to benefit area food banks and non-profit partners dedicated to eliminating hunger for pets in their local communities.
"It is awful to imagine, but there are many people with limited financial means who face a difficult dilemma each week; feed themselves or feed their pets," said Rondel Hartwell, director of community involvement and charitable giving for Winn-Dixie. "Each year we dedicate countless resources to our area food partners to help feed the hungry. In the month of April we want to do a little more for our furry friends."
Now through Tuesday, April 29, Winn-Dixie customers can purchase a $5 pre-packaged bag of pet food with their Winn-Dixie Reward Card or give a monetary donation of their choice at any store register. Each bag contains a week's worth of dry and canned packages of PAWS Premium, Winn-Dixie's own brand of high-quality, nutritious cat and dog food. For every bag purchased, Winn-Dixie customers will receive an additional 5 cents per gallon in fuelperks! Rewards, Winn-Dixie's program that saves customers money on gas just for buying groceries.
