Today, Southeastern Grocers, Inc. (SEG), parent company and home of
BI-LO, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, announces the
launch of a six-week community donation program to benefit Folds of

provide educational scholarships to the children and spouses impacted by
a loved one’s sacrifice for the United States military.

Now through the Fourth of July, BI-LO, Harveys Supermarket and
Winn-Dixie customers can honor America’s heroes and their families by
rounding up their total grocery bill to the nearest dollar at check out.
Every cent donated to Folds of Honor helps provide a brighter future for
the legacies of fallen and disabled service members through education.

Andrew Nadin, EVP and Chief Customer Officer of Southeastern Grocers,
said,
 “At Southeastern Grocers, we are proud to stand with Folds of
Honor in support of those who have sacrificed their ability to stand
themselves. It’s not just about honoring those who made it their
responsibility to fight for the freedoms Americans cherish most; it’s
also about our responsibility to fight for those they left behind –
because military families serve too.”

Major Dan Rooney, Founder and CEO of Folds of Honor, said, “We
greatly value our partnership with Southeastern Grocers and its
commitment to honor our servicemen and servicewomen. We are incredibly
grateful for the compassion and generosity their customers and community
members have shown and continue to show for our military families.”

This continued partnership with Folds of Honor allows Southeastern
Grocers to expand their support of the customers, associates and
families of those who have served, continue to serve or have made the
ultimate sacrifice for our country.
