Theft at charity leads to donation

A pair of food industry companies will donate $20,000 in Lowe’s gift cards to Beaches Habitat for Humanity, a Jacksonville, Fla.-area charity that suffered a burglary over the weekend.

Regional retailer Winn-Dixie and food giant Kellogg’s offered the assistance to help the charity replace tools stolen from one of its facilities.

Winn-Dixie, Kellogg’s and Habitat for Humanity first partnered in 2005 on the construction of a duplex home in Jacksonville Beach, Fla.  Since then, homes have been completed in Montgomery, Ala.; Columbus, Ga.; Port Charlotte, Fla.; Palm Bay, Fla.; Covington, La.; Hancock County, Miss.; and Miami.  Work on a tenth home is scheduled to begin in Jacksonville Beach next month.
