More than 1,000 Publix Super Markets stores will encourage customers and associates to donate at checkout for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Running through June 14, the campaign will help provide treatment, services, equipment and charitable care to sick and injured kids at children’s hospitals across Publix’s Southeast market area.
This year is the 21st that Publix associates and customers will purchase $1, $3 and $5 icons at store checkouts. As an incentive to donate, customers can receive in-store coupons offering up to $20 in value. The donation coupon book features discounts on products from Del Monte Foods, Kellogg’s, Mars Chocolate, Pepsi and Frito-Lay (Lays), Wrigley, Mars Petcare, Cat’s Pride and Georgia-Pacific paper products.
“No one understands the importance of local giving and impact better than Publix customers and employees, and no one is more deserving than children who enter a hospital for critical treatment,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Salt Lake City-based Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “[W]ith new supermarket openings over the past year, Publix is now able to help 21 of our member hospitals provide the absolute best in pediatric care.”
Privately owned and operated by its 158,000 employees, Lakeland, Fla.-based Publix operates 1,069 supermarkets in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee.
