Supporting United Way
Thank you to our associates and Publix Super Markets Charities for their generosity.
United Way works in our communities by supporting local agencies. From helping those with physical and mental disabilities to delivering meals to seniors, agencies supported by United Way make a visible impact in their communities.
Each year, Publix associates pledge to United Way, largely through payroll deductions. In 2016, Publix associates pledged $35.5 million. Combined with a $26.5 million match from Publix Super Markets Charities, the total for 2016 is $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.
Publix is consistently one of the top donors to United Way in the United States, and we couldn’t do it without the generous associates that you, our customers, see every day. It’s no surprise that the caring individuals who personally walk you to a product you’re seeking or cheerfully greet you in the checkout line are the same individuals who make our United Way donation campaign such a success.
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.
Thank you to our associates and to Publix Super Markets Charities for your contributions in 2016 and in years past.
