Bi-Lo Raises Food Donations for Pets

MAULDIN, S.C. — Bi-Lo [1] here is running its third annual PAWS “Feed the Love” pet food drive, which kicked off chainwide Wednesday and runs through March 27.

Local food banks face the dual challenge of diminished contributions and an increased number of individuals in need of food not only for themselves, but also for their pets, Bi-Lo noted. See video report [2].

Since 2010, the Bi-Lo’s campaign has provided over 65 tons of pet food for families in need throughout the retailer’s operating market. Each “Feed the Love” bag sells for $5, purchased with the My Bi-Lo bonus card, and contains a week’s worth of dry and canned packages of PAWS Premium, Bi-Lo’s private label.

 In addition, for every bag purchased, Bi-Lo said customers will receive an additional 10 cents per gallon in fuelperks! rewards, an exclusive program that saves customers money on gas for buying groceries.
