Southeastern Grocers Pledges to “Double Down” on Community Donations Every Monday Through July 4th
Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022
Southeastern Grocers Inc. (SEG), parent company and home of Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, together with the SEG Gives Foundation, is doubling down with a Military Monday matching commitment. Each Monday starting June 20 through July 4, the grocer’s charitable arm will further support its Folds of Honor community donation program by matching weekend in-store donations, up to $100,000 each Monday. The enlistment of matching on Military Mondays and the funds raised throughout the program will help Folds of Honor in its mission to provide educational scholarships to the children and spouses of America’s fallen and disabled service members.
Raymond Rhee, Chief People Officer for Southeastern Grocers, said, “At Southeastern Grocers, we are dedicated to supporting the communities we serve, especially those who serve us. By doubling down on all in-store Folds of Honor donations with a matching commitment, we are paying it forward to the legacies of the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice with their service to our country.”
Customers can have their donations doubled when they simply donate $1, $5 or round up their total grocery bill to the nearest dollar at checkout in support of United States military heroes and their loved ones. The SEG Gives Foundation will automatically match all weekend donations, up to $100,000. Donations will be matched on Monday June 20, June 27 and July 4 for a possible total match of $300,000.
Customers can also continue to donate any day of the week through July 5. Every cent raised will help Folds of Honor provide private education tuition and tutoring for children in grades K-12, along with higher education tuition assistance for spouses and dependents.
SEG and the SEG Gives Foundation, together with generous customers and associates, have donated more than $5.5 million to Folds of Honor since 2018, which has allocated over 1,100 educational scholarships to the children and spouses of United States military members impacted by their loved one’s call to duty. Since 2007, Folds of Honor has awarded approximately 35,000 educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members.
