Southeastern Grocers intros donation program benefitting 8 children’s hospitals
Southeastern Grocers is working with its SEG Gives Foundation on a collaborative partnership with eight children’s hospitals across its southeast footprint.
Through this partnership, the retailer will launch a community donation program that will benefit these hospitals across its Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie banners across Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi.
“We are a people first company that is dedicated to supporting our local communities and we are honored to partner with our local health care heroes to serve as committed advocates for the well-being of children and families,” Anthony Hucker, President and CEO of Southeastern Grocers, said. “We understand the value that local children’s hospitals offer as a beacon of hope to families facing challenging times and a vital community health resource to ensure children of all ages receive specialized, quality care. This is just the beginning of our partnership, and we look forward to building stronger, healthier communities together.”
The hospitals the retailer is working with include the Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, Children’s of Alabama, Children’s of Mississippi, Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, Studer Family Children’s Hospital and Wolfson Children’s Hospital.
Donations received through April 20 will be donated directly to the eight hospitals to support its pediatric specialties, family-centered support, therapeutic activities, research and child advocacy programs, the company said.
