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 1st through February 29th 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 shoppers live and work in. 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 beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Winn Dixie located at 625 N Collier Blvd, Marco Island, FL. 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 1st and February 29th.  

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