Southeastern Grocers' latest round-up campaign supports nine children's hospitals in the Southeast region.

Southeastern Grocers, Inc. announced a new fundraising campaign benefiting nine children’s hospitals across its service area. Timed for National Cancer Research Month, the three-week campaign will raise monies for pediatric care facilities to cover care specialties, research, family support, therapeutic activities and child advocacy, among other programs.

From now through May 17, customers in the Southeast can round up their bills when shopping at Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery stores. Healthcare institutions receiving the funds include the following:

  • Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Fla.
  • Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando, Fla.
  • Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida in Fort Myers, Fla.
  • Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Fla.

  • Studer Family Children’s Hospital in Pensacola, Fla.
  • Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham, Ala.
