 COMPANY WILL DELIVER AN ADDITIONAL 120,000 GALLONS FRIDAY MORNING
 POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, Aug. 28, at 8 a.m., Winn-Dixie will deliver an additional 120,000 gallons of fresh bottled water in a continuing effort to meet the serious demands of fresh water in Miami and surrounding communities, R. J. Ehster, vice president and division manager of Winn-Dixie Miami, today.
 A convoy of 30 trucks will leave the Winn-Dixie warehouse in Hialeah at 6 a.m. The convoy will proceed to six Winn-Dixie locations in Miami and surrounding communities. Winn-Dixie began distribution of the first 120,000 gallons of bottled water on Tuesday afternoon.
 "There is still a very serious shortage of fresh water," said Ehster. "We are continuing to try to meet this important need." Winn- Dixie is also working with the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army to provide food and financial support to those areas most affected by Hurricane Andrew.
 As it did throughout the beginning of the week, Winn-Dixie will offer two free gallons of fresh bottled water per family. In addition to making the communities aware of the free water, Winn-Dixie also needs volunteers to assist in distributing the water. Volunteers are welcome at any of the donation sites. The additional bottled water will be made available to families at the following Winn-Dixie locations on Friday at 8 a.m.:
 30346 Old Dixie Highway, Homestead
 12107 SW 152nd Street, Miami
 27359 S. Dixie Highway, Homestead
