For the Love of Cats Community Bag Program at Winn Dixie

For the Love of Cats, a non-profit committed to saving the lives of cats and kittens in our community, has been selected as a beneficiary of the Community Bag Program from February 20th through March 31st at the local Winn Dixie store on Marco Island.

The Community Bag Program, which launched in January 2019, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work. The program features two reusable Community Bags with a special Giving Tag attached to it that allows customers to direct a donation to a non-profit of their choice upon purchase.

For the Love of Cats was selected as the February-March beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Winn Dixie located at 625 N. Collier Blvd., Marco Island, Florida. For the Love of Cats will receive a $1 donation every time either of the reusable Community Bags are purchased at this location between February 20th and March 31st.

The two colorful reusable Community Bags with the Giving Tag can be found on the reusable bag rack at the store. The key is to look for the bags with a tag that features a blue heart.

“This is so exciting for us to be part of this new program with Winn Dixie and to be the first organization in the area to be chosen!” said For the Love of Cats Executive Director, Jan Rich. “The donations from this program will really help us in our mission to help cats and kittens in need in our community. They cannot help themselves, they need your help!

For the Love of Cats has a goal of raising $250 between February 20th and March 31st. For the Love of Cats plans to use the projected funds to help any and all cats and kittens in our area that need rescue, emergency veterinary services or spay/neuter services.
