More than $51,000 is making its way to families in need, thanks to a donation by Publix Super Markets and the Food For All Campaign. Publix representatives presented MUST Ministries with a $26,413.73 check for MUST's work in Cherokee County (photo) and another check for $25,000 for work in Cobb County.
Publix Super Markets raised a total of $1.4 million in its Food For All Campaign in December 2016, which allowed Publix customers and associates to purchase $1, $3 or $5 donation coupons during checkout. Those proceeds were distributed to 60 nonprofit organizations in Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee.
Brenda Reid, Publix media and community relations manager said, "Thanks to the generosity of our customers and the enthusiasm of our associates the campaign is helping to make a difference in the lives of so many in the communities we serve."
With 1,145 stores in six states, Publix has been named one of Fortune's "100 Best Companies to Work for in America" for 20 consecutive years. The Food For All campaign focuses on the fight against hunger.
