Publix Super Markets Donates $250,000
Publix Super Markets Charities is donating $250,000 to the American Red Cross and United Way to assist relief efforts for areas impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
Publix is also beginning a register campaign that allows customers to help those affected during the storm by donating any amount during checkout at any of their stores. All the donated funds will be given to the American Red Cross, which will allow the American Red Cross to respond and assist people in recovering from this disaster. The program’s end will be determined by customer donation.
