Community Bag Program

We are so excited to share that Farmhouse Animal and Nature Sanctuary has been selected to be a part of the Community Bag Program, which is designed to make it easy for customers to contribute to their local community while supporting the environment.

The Giving Tag 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.

The Giving Tag Program team conducted a research process to identify, qualify and screen non-profits for their program. Farmhouse Animal and Nature Sanctuary stood out to them as an incredible non-profit in the local community.

The Tag:

When a shopper purchases a  $2.50 Community Bag at any BILO, Fresco y Más, Harveys or Winn-Dixie store, the shopper can select Farmhouse Animal and Nature Sanctuary as the recipient of a $1 donation by following the instructions on the Giving Tag attached to the bag. This opportunity is available to our 501(c)(3) nonprofit 365 days a


The Bag:

Each month, leadership at every BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys and Winn-Dixie location choose a non-profit to benefit from their Community Bag Program. Any donation that is not otherwise directed by the Giving Tag will be sent to this “default” non-profit. Farmhouse Animal and Nature Sanctuary has been chosen by the Winn-Dixie in Wauchula FL for the month of June 2020.

How to use the Tag:

The Giving Tag is affixed to the reusable Community Bags which can be found on the designated reusable bag rack and at various registers.

Upon purchasing the Community Bag with the Giving Tag at any BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys or Winn-Dixie, shoppers are directed to:

  1. Visit within 7 days of their purchase.
  2. Remove the scratch-off layer on the Giving Tag to reveal the unique identifier.
  3. Submit their identifier and select the non-profit they would like to receive a $1 donation.
