Winn-Dixie store No. 330 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. has been building on its community relationship with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School for more than two years.

This year, store Director Donnell McDonald and Pricing Lead Tia Mulgrave welcomed new school administrators, Principal Cheryl Proctor and Vice Principal Derrick Huff, inviting them to join families and school staff at the store for a Math Night on March 13.

From donations to Jr. Cake Decorator events, McDonald and Mulgrave have earned praise from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School and even have a Winn-Dixie banner displayed on the front gate of the school.

“We are excited to develop the trust we’ve gained from our neighbors with Principal Proctor and Vice Principal Huff,” McDonald said. “The energy of our team, the families and school staff was a great testament of the relationships we have built at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School.”

School staff and the Winn-Dixie team welcomed more than 250 families.

“The interaction between our families and Winn-Dixie staff was a tremendous sign that Donnell and Tia have done a fantastic job supporting the school,” Proctor said. “The Math Night was a fun family-friendly activity, and I am excited to work with Winn-Dixie to continue providing these types of events for our students.”
