Our founder, Mr. George, spent his life sharing his time, money and talents — in hopes of making a difference in the lives of others. When asked what he thought he would be worth if he hadn’t given away so much, Mr. George answered without hesitation, “Probably nothing.”
Mr. George immensely enjoyed serving his community. His legacy lives on through our associates who continue to make a positive impact in our communities.
Part of our mission statement is to be involved as responsible citizens in our communities. Our associates and customers support many organizations, such as Feeding America and March of Dimes, and they feel great satisfaction when they’re able to see the results of their efforts.
For Publix, being involved in our communities just makes sense. Our customers notice when associates are involved — and when we care about the same efforts they care about. Giving back isn’t just the right thing to do, giving back is part of our Publix culture.
