Special Olympics

Thank you for your support.

Special Olympics

Each year in January, Publix associates and customers come together to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics. The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for people with intellectual disabilities who wish to participate, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and share their gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.

In 2020, our customers and associates contributed more than $4.5 million to the Special Olympics to ensure athletes were able to train and compete free of cost. This brings our total donation since 1993 to almost $56 million.

We're proud to contribute to and partner with this incredible organization, and we’re so grateful to you, our customers and our associates, for your continued support.
