Mckee Botanical Garden chosen as Winn-Dixie Community Bag beneficiary

VERO BEACH – McKee Botanical Garden has been selected as a beneficiary of the Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program for the Month of August.

The Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program, which launched in February 2020, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work.

McKee Botanical Garden was selected as the August beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Winn-Dixie located at 2950 9th Street SW (Oslo Road) in Vero Beach. McKee Botanical Garden will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location during the month of August, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.

“We are grateful to Winn-Dixie for selecting McKee Botanical Garden as the beneficiary of this program.  Plastic grocery bags end up in our landfills and take many years to decompose.  Our Garden staff and volunteers are committed to making the world a better, cleaner, and greener place,” stated Executive Director Christine Hobart.
