CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – BI-LO’s parent company Southeastern Grocers is encouraging cutomers to be prepared for a hurricane ahead of, what’s expected to be, an active hurricane season.
They reminded customers that Tropical Storm Cristobal’s recent threat to the southeast is a reminder that now is the time to prepare and stock-up on hurricane essentials.
According to Southeastern Grocers, the most vital items include a three day supply of:
- Bottled water
- Non-perishable food (Including baby formula)
- First-aid kits
In addition to helping the community prepare, the SEG Gives Foundation is also committing $250,000 to disaster relief to ensure the American Red Cross is set up for success and able to provide aid to people in need if disaster strikes.
