Winn-Dixie Foundation donates $1.4 million


The Winn-Dixie Foundation announced Thursday it will invest nearly $1.4 million in neighborhoods across the Southeast through partnerships with 116 nonprofit organizations.

“Winn-Dixie is at the heart of the neighborhoods we serve,” said Mary Kellmanson, president of the foundation and marketing group vice president of Jacksonville-based Winn-Dixie Stores Inc.

“We are inspired by the stories we hear from past recipients, and we look forward to seeing the good work our newest partners will do in the coming year. Empowering these organizations through the Winn-Dixie Foundation with needed resources is one of many ways we invest in our communities,” she said.

The foundation provides grants to programs that feed the hungry, assist women and children in need, help the sick and address inequalities in education and health. It works with partners that support the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open presented by Planters, a PGA Tour Nationwide Tour event.

Last year, the Winn-Dixie Foundation helped fund 83 programs in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi.
