Publix Charities Donates $1,275,500 to United Way of Palm Beach County

Publix District Managers Danny Barber and Lilian Cook recently visited the United Way of Palm Beach County in West Palm Beach, Florida to present Publix Charities’ $1,275,500 donation. This donation represents a matching gift to Publix associates’ pledges to this United Way.

Publix Super Markets, Inc. and Publix Charities ranked number one on this United Way’s list of supporters in 2016. Now, we are happy to continue giving to this organization, which is so appreciated by its partner agencies and by those they help in the community.

“Without a lot of the things that United Way provides for this program, there’s a lot we wouldn’t be able to do,” says Vernon Williams, coordinator at Coalition for Independent Living Options, which receives support from United Way of Palm Beach County. “I am proud to be a partner of United Way.”1
