“The Bi-Lo Holdings Foundation is thankful for the immense support and contributions of our suppliers that enable us to provide these funds to the local organizations who work tirelessly to make our communities better places to live,” said Mary Kellmanson, foundation president and Bi-Lo Holdings LLC’ SVP of marketing, who added that the foundation would be “growing our relationships with these organizations over the next year.”
