LCHS Celebrates Selection as a Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program Beneficiary

The Lee County Humane Society (LCHS) has been selected as a beneficiary of the Community Bag Program for the month of September. The Winn-Dixie Community Bag Program, which launched in February 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. 

Lee County Humane Society was selected as the September beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Winn-Dixie located at 1441 Foxrun Parkway in Opelika, AL. LCHS will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location during September unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag. 

These donations will help the Lee County Humane Society to fulfill its mission by providing necessary care to stray and unwanted animals, offering an array of community programs, as well as educating the public about responsible pet ownership. 

Lee County Humane Society is a non-profit located in Auburn, AL. Founded in 1974, LCHS has served the citizens and animals of Auburn and Opelika for many years and envisions a future in which animals are valued, pet overpopulation is eliminated, and every adoptable companion animal has a loving and responsible home.
