Published December 2017

Publix Charities is pleased to support local parks in the City of Lakeland with this gift. As a result, the complex formerly known as Edgewood Park has been renamed Publix Charities Park in appreciation.

“Publix Super Markets Charities has changed the face of our community, and for that we are extremely grateful,” said Mayor Howard Wiggs. “We see the results of their giving in the youth that participate in our sports programs. We see the results of their giving in the thousands of adults who run or walk our trails. Publix Super Markets Charities has touched our community and made it the special place that we call home.”
