The Marco Island Woman’s Club, a non-profit civic-minded organization, has been chosen as a beneficiary of the community bag program for the month of March by Winn-Dixie of Marco Island.

The bag program was launched in February 2019 to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work. 

Marco Island Woman’s Club was selected as the March beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Winn-Dixie located at 625 N. Collier Blvd., Marco Island. Marco Island Woman’s Club will receive a $1 donation every time a $2.50 reusable community bag, with the special giving tag, is purchased at this location from March 1 through March 31.
