This year, local community nonprofits are more in need of support than in any other time in recent years. 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. NAMI Collier County has been selected by local Winn-Dixie store leadership as the benefiting nonprofit in the Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program for the month of April.
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 nonprofit 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 nonprofit is selected to benefit from the sale of these special reusable Community Bags. NAMI Collier County was selected as the April beneficiary by local store leadership at the store located at 7550 Mission Hills Drive in Naples. NAMI Collier County will receive a $1 donation for every $2.99 reusable Community Bag purchased at this location in April.
“This year has brought so many changes and difficulties for nonprofits at the hyper-local level,” said Kristin Long, director of development with NAMI Collier County. “We are thrilled to be participating in this innovative program that makes it possible for shoppers to give back to local nonprofits while reducing single-use plastic in the environment. We appreciate the community support in this important initiative to make a difference.”
