3. For the Love of Cats receives donation from Winn-Dixie
The Marco Island Winn-Dixie store has donated $201 to For the Love of Cats through the store’s community bag program, according to a press release from the organization.
Throughout the month of October, purchases of the reusable bag for $2.50 each generated a $1 donation to For the Love of Cats.
This is the second time within one year that For the Love of Cats has been selected as a beneficiary for the community bag program. In April 2019, For the Love of Cats was first selected to benefit from the program with the resulting donation total of $539. Their April donation total was the highest monthly total for the program in the United States.
“This was really exciting for us to be chosen a second time!” said Jan Rich, executive director of For the Love of Cats. “The support of all of our friends in the community is just amazing and we are so grateful to be helping to save the lives of cats and kittens in need throughout Collier County with their support. We could not do this without their help.”
