Beginning May 25, more than a thousand Publix Super Markets will encourage customers and associates to make a donation at the register for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a charity raising funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.
The three-week campaign will help provide needed treatment, services, equipment and charitable care to sick and injured children in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and Tennessee.
2013 marks 21 years that Publix associates and customers will rally to help hospitals through the purchase of $1, $3 and $5 icons at store checkouts. In addition to helping fund a variety of life-saving treatments and services, Publix customers canreceive in-store coupons up to $20 in value as an incentive for their donation.
The donation coupon book includes discounts on products from Del Monte Foods, Kellogg’s, Mars Chocolate, Pepsi and Frito-Lay (Lays), Wrigley, Mars Petcare, Cat’s Pride and Georgia Pacific paper products.
“No one understands the importance of local giving and impact better than Publix customers and employees, and no one is more deserving than children who enter a hospital for critical treatment,” said John Lauck, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals president and CEO. “We’re thrilled that with new supermarket openings over the past year, Publix is now able to help 21 of our member hospitals provide the absolute best in pediatric care.”
