Each year, Publix associates pledge to United Way, largely through payroll deductions. In 2016, associates pledged $35.5 million. Publix Super Markets Charities will provide an additional $26.5 million for a total of $62 million.
Although United Way is a national organization, the money raised locally stays in our communities. By working closely with a vast network of volunteers, local United Ways are able to raise funds to meet the needs of their neighbors, from helping those with physical and mental disabilities to delivering meals to seniors.
Publix Charities is proud to support this organization and the great work they do throughout the Southeast.
Publix would like to extend special recognition to our associates who volunteer with agencies supported by United Way. Not only do they donate funds, but also they donate their time and talents in order to improve lives in their communities.
