News Release: Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. June 30, 2015
TALLAHASSEE – Winn-Dixie today announced that on Saturday, July 4, all profits generated at its grocery stores will be donated in support of Wounded Warrior Project’s Independence Program.
The Independence Program is designed to help warriors who need to rely on their families and friends for support due to injuries they have suffered, such as brain injury, spinal-cord injury, or other neurological conditions. Individualized plans are created with goals to provide a future with purpose at no cost to the warriors or their support teams.
“Winn-Dixie operates in states with some of the highest Active Duty military populations in the United States,” said Ian McLeod, CEO and president of Southeastern Grocers, parent company of BI-LO, Harveys and Winn-Dixie grocery stores.
“While we recognize on Memorial Day those soldiers who paid the supreme sacrifice and give thanks to those who have served on Veterans Day, the sacrifice and needs of those who are severely injured visibly or invisibly is not necessarily fully understood. I am honoured that we are running this program and am thankful to the military men and women and their families for their service and sacrifice.”
“We believe we all have a responsibility to care and contribute to the lives of those who have served and sacrificed for the nation, which is why we are committing every cent of every dollar of profit generated this Independence Day across all of our Winn-Dixie stores to help support the Wounded Warrior Project’s Independence Program,” continued McLeod. “We felt it is the right thing to do, and our associates do, too.”
“Continuing our work with Winn-Dixie in the spirit of supporting our lifelong commitment to serving our nation’s veterans is exciting,” stated Steven Nardizzi, CEO of Wounded Warrior Project. “Dedication to our injured service members is evident in the sincere efforts of companies like Winn-Dixie, and the support we will be receiving from them is vital to our mission to honor and empower our Wounded Warriors, and Independence Day is the perfect time to celebrate.”

Lesley Vitel has been serving the needs of both home buyers and sellers in Florida for well over a decade. During this time, she has acquired the crucial skills necessary to guide anyone through the process of finding the home of their dreams or getting out of one that is no longer meeting their needs.
This tech "savvyness" is just a sample of the knowledge and assistance they are capable of providing you as a client.
Lesley is very familiar with the area. She is able to take into consideration the neighborhoods, schools, crime rates and local market conditions during the process of finding the right home for you. All too often, people move into a beautiful home that is in the wrong location, and Lesley will use her skills and experience to make sure that does not happen to you.
This professional understands the value of consistent communication. Many real estate agencies fail to return important phone calls or give valuable that clients need to know. Lesley understands that you have expectations and are embarking on a life changing journey, and she strives to make herself and her staff readily available to answer questions and keep you properly updated throughout the entire process.
Online marketing is crucial in the age we live in, and most home buyers search online first for the home of their dreams. Buyers and sellers alike will be pleased with the capabilities Lesley Vitel makes available online.
If you are in the market for anything from traditional condos and single family home sales to short-sales, foreclosures and auctions, then you have found the right place to take care of your needs. Lesley and the rest of her staff are continually sharpening their real estate skills and would be pleased to share their knowledge with you.
If you bought your home in 2015 or, you may be surprised how that can
"Lynn and Lesley are the team you want. Their professionalism and expertise are second to none. Ok so now that I have said what every testimonial says, here is the more heartfelt version. They are amazing. This is a difficult market that changes from month to month if not more often. In the last year, the rules and complexities of buying and selling have changed repeatedly. This is not the market of your mother and father. Fannie Mae/Freddie Mack REO’s and short sales now dominate the market. It is no easy task to keep up. Who own the house in the case of a short sale? Do you know how long a short sale takes? Do you know if you need a refrigerator to close an FHA loan? You would be foolish to attempt to buy a short sale or foreclosure property without Lynn and Lesley’s knowledge of the market. And by the way, buying new construction is no less complicated. As with so many things in life, being a good agent is an art form. Some people ‘get it’ and others don’t. Buyer’s remorse is the last thing you want. They will listen to you even when you don’t know what you are saying. Their ability to get the job is unparalleled. So what are you waiting for, your new home isn’t. Call them!"
