Winn-Dixie and customers help animals

Winn-Dixie recently launched PAWS, a "Feed the Love" community donation program that benefits area food banks and nonprofit partners dedicated to eliminating hunger for pets in local communities.

"Unfortunately, many people with limited financial means face a difficult dilemma each week; feed themselves or feed their pets," said Rondel Hartwell, director of community involvement and charitable giving for Winn-Dixie. "Each year we dedicate countless resources to our area food partners to help feed the hungry. In the month of April we want to do a little more for our furry friends."

Now through April 29, Winn-Dixie customers can purchase a $5 bag of pet food with their Winn-Dixie Reward Card or make a monetary donation at any store register. Each bag contains a week's worth of dry and canned packages of PAWS Premium cat and dog food.

For every bag purchased, Winn-Dixie customers will receive an additional 5 cents per gallon in fuel rewards.
