Special Olympics

Thank you for your support.

Special Olympics

Each January, Publix associates and customers join together to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics. You can choose to donate to Special Olympics by purchasing a paper torch for $1, $3, $5, $10 or other amounts at the register. All campaign funds raised will go directly to support local and statewide athlete programming.

About Special Olympics.

The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and competitions in a variety of Olympic-type sports for people with intellectual disabilities. These continuing opportunities allow individuals a chance 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.

Publix campaign contributions.

In 2021, our customers and associates contributed a total of $4.5 million to 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. The continued success of this partnership has been made possible by our generous customers and associates, and we are so grateful.
