Winn-Dixie gifts $100K and groceries to Selma’s tornado recovery
SELMA, Ala. (WSFA) - Winn-Dixie is helping out in a big way to support tornado recovery efforts in Selma and the surrounding areas.
The grocer on Wednesday presented a $100,000 check that will benefit the United Way of Selma & Dallas County’s disaster relief fund. The company said it also donated $15,000 worth of pantry essentials to the Selma Area Food Bank.
“At Winn-Dixie, we are committed to supporting the communities we serve in every way possible,” said Lynn Rushing, Winn-Dixie regional vice president. “As a community, we are stronger together and we are proud to partner with local organizations to support our Selma neighbors during this difficult time.”
Winn-Dixie officials say the Selma location sustained a considerable amount of damage in last week’s tornado. The store and pharmacy have since reopened.
