Winn-Dixie expands community project
Winn-Dixie is building on its commitment to community by raising funds for pediatric care.
Now through March 5, customers at all Louisiana Winn-Dixie locations will be invited to make donations at the register to support Ochsner Hospital for Children. In addition, the neighborhood grocer will donate a percentage of its king cake sales throughout Mardi Gras season to Ochsner Hospital for Children. According to the company, the dollars raised will impact the lives of young patients and support programs such as the Michael R. Boh Center for Child Development, which offers personalized, family-centered patient care to children with a range of physical, cognitive and behavioral disabilities.
“We are truly excited to take this next step in our partnership with Ochsner Hospital for Children as we continue to deepen our roots and further solidify our enduring commitment to communities across Louisiana. Winn-Dixie has a strong history in Louisiana, and we're proud to be rooted in this region for more than 60 years,” said Anthony Hucker, president and CEO of Southeastern Grocers, Winn Dixie’s parent company. “We're always looking for ways we can improve the health and happiness of our local communities, which is why we are passionate about supporting Ochsner and other organizations that share our compassion for the people we serve.”
