Published May 2017

Representatives of United Way of Northeast Georgia in Athens recently visited their local Publix store and received Publix Charities’ $211,500 donation. Publix District Manager Joe Prestigiacomo and his team of managers presented the check, which represents a matching gift to Publix associates’ pledge to this United Way.

Founded with the name “Athens/Clarke County Community Chest” in 1954, United Way of Northeast Georgia now spans an eight-county area. Publix Charities is proud to make this contribution so that the organization can continue to support human service agencies that do great things for those living in the region.
