Southeastern Grocers, Inc. (SEG), parent company and home of BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, has announced the launch of its Community Bag with a Giving Tag Program.
With each purchase of a reusable Community Bag with the Giving Tag, customers can direct a $1 donation to the non-profit of their choice to benefit the work a local charity is doing in their community. The specially designed reusable bags are made from recycled materials, and can be found by registers on the reusable bag rack at all BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery stores in the Southeast.
Each Community Bag comes with an attached Giving Tag that features a blue heart and instructions on how to make the donation. At the time of purchase, customers will be directed to visit MySEGCause.com where they will have seven days to remove the scratch-off layer from their Giving Tag to reveal and submit their unique identifier and select the non-profit they would like to receive their $1 donation.
If customers do not see their favorite non-profit listed among the thousands of charitable partners, they can submit it for consideration and approval via SEG.Bags4MyCause.com by selecting “Submit a Non-Profit” from the menu option. If a customer does not assign the $1 donation to a charity within seven days, the donation will automatically default to a non-profit organization selected by the store manager at each store location, so the donation will still support that store’s community.
