Winn Dixie Gives

During one week in August, Winn Dixie ran a “round up” campaign, allowing shoppers to donate to St. Johns County School District’s A.S.S.I.S.T. Program at the check out line which resulted in a donation of $4,046. Their support also included $10,000 in food to be distributed through Hugs Across the County and $5,000 in gift cards to help homeless students and unaccompanied youth in our county.
