ATLANTA, May 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dixie® brand recently launched the "A Lot On Your Plate" contest to address everyday needs and frustrations people are experiencing during this hectic time, vowing to distribute 500 prizes to people across the 50 United States and the District of Columbia each week for eight weeks. With this program, the Dixie® brand aims to take a bit of weight off inevitably full plates, to help make disrupted lives more manageable.
Tired of doing the dishes? Need a week's worth of groceries delivered to your doorstep? Run out of ways to entertain the kids? In need of a home office remodel? Interested in online cooking classes to help wean off food delivery? How about a home haircut tutorial? Whatever the unique challenge, the Dixie® brand is here to lend a helping hand to the winners selected.
During the eight-week contest period, which ends on July 6th, the brand will provide eight people with bespoke gifts worth up to $10,000; 300 people tailored giveaways worth up to $500; and 4,000 people $15 worth* of Dixie® Products. With more people spending time at home, dishes have been piling up and people have taken to social media to express their frustration (1.67K mentions, a 27% increase in dishwashing complaints since March, 2020 to date, sources: Sysomos, Query). That's where the Dixie® brand comes in.
"For more than a century, the brand has been dedicated to helping others and addressing real human needs," said Teresa Bossong, Dixie® Brand Leader.

No matter who you are or where you're from, we know you have a lot on your plate.
