SEG Begins Donation Campaign Supporting Children’s Hospitals

SEG Children's Hospitals

Southeastern Grocers Inc. (SEG) is partnering with eight children’s hospitals across the Southeast to raise funds for pediatric health care provided to local children.

Through April 30, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie customers are encouraged to donate $1, $5 or round up their total grocery bill to support a local children’s hospital. Donations will aid each facility’s specialty programs, including family centered support, therapeutic activities, research, child advocacy, pediatric cancer and additional programs that contribute to the recovery of young patients.

“We are dedicated to nurturing the health and happiness of the communities we serve,” said Raymond Rhee, chief people officer for SEG.

“Our ongoing collaboration with our children’s hospital partners allows us to support the tireless work of health care providers, while fostering hope and healing for young patients and their families across the Southeast. Together with our customers, we can make a difference in the lives of children facing medical challenges and build a stronger, healthier future for all.”

Funds collected during SEG’s community donation program will be donated to the following eight children’s hospitals to support their specialized care and emergency services:

  • Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida;
  • Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children; 
  • Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida;
  • Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida;
  • Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami;
  • Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart in Pensacola, Florida;
  • Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham; and
  • Ochsner Children’s Hospital in New Orleans.

SEG has raised more than $1.1 million for its local children’s hospital partners since the program’s inception in 2021.

In addition to supporting local children’s hospitals, SEG recently partnered with the Roc Solid Foundation to construct a playground set for a local child battling cancer as a patient at Wolfson Children’s Hospital. Pediatric cancer patients cannot often use public playgrounds during treatment due to weakened immune systems, and a private playset provides the family with a way to create memories together safely.

Through this partnership, SEG has built three additional playsets for local patients in Jacksonville (2021), Tampa (2022) and New Orleans (2023).
