The donation was made possible by SEG’s associate allies who purchased PRIDE-themed t-shirts designed and produced by the grocer to celebrate differences and encourage individuals to be their true, authentic selves.

“SEG stores are committed to cultivating a culture of belonging and inclusion that directly reflects the diverse communities it serves, a release said. “Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie care passionately about North Florida neighbors and are proud to help amplify the voices of underrepresented sectors of the community that are often left unheard.”
