For the Love of Cats Receives Community Bag Program Donation

For the Love of Cats, a non-profit committed to saving the lives of cats and kittens in need in our community, has raised $460 through the Community Bag Program at Winn Dixie.

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 where shoppers live and work. The program features the reusable Community Bag with a 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 March beneficiary of the program at the Winn Dixie located on Marco Island. For the Love of Cats received a $1 donation every time a Community Bag was purchased. 

“We couldn’t have done this without the significant support from our community and the team at the Winn Dixie located at 625 N. Collier Boulevard, Marco Island, Florida,” said For the Love of Cats Executive Director, Jan Rich. “Steve, the store manager, made a wonderful display for us and the donations from this program will go directly to our programs that help cats in need throughout Collier County. Winn Dixie offered this program in 549 stores and For the Love of Cats will receive the largest donation from Winn Dixie for the March program. We are so very grateful for the wonderful support of our friends in the community.”

For the Love of Cats is a non-profit based in Marco Island, Florida. Founded in 2002, For the Love of Cats continues their programs of TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return), support for cats in need with low income families, Seniors for Seniors cat adoption subsidies, and education and support to the benefit of cats throughout Collier County.
