Publix supports Hurricane Dorian relief efforts

09/05/2019
Publix is looking to do its part in aiding those who have been affected by disastrous Hurricane Dorian.

Through its Super Markets Charities, the Lakeland, Fla.-based retailer announced that it would be donating $250,000 to the American Red Cross and United Way to help fund relief efforts for those in communities that have been affected by the storm.

“The damage and impact caused by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas has been devastating, and its path continues to affect Publix customers and associates in our coastal areas,” Maria Brous, director of media and community relations at Publix, said. “We have a long-standing history of providing support during times of need, and it is our privilege to do what we can to help those impacted by this storm.”

In addition, Publix also announced that it is activating its register campaign, which allows customers to help the affected by making any donation at the register when checking out their purchases.

One hundred percent of the funds raised will go to the American Red Cross’ efforts to respond to and help people recover from the disaster.

An end date for the register donation program will be determined and based on customer response, the company said.
