Publix Activates Disaster Relief Register Donation Campaign to Support Efforts in Puerto Rico
Publix is activating a register campaign to allow customers to assist Puerto Rico in response to the effects of Hurricane Fiona. Donations can be made at checkout at any Publix store in the Jacksonville, Lakeland and Miami divisions, and 100% of the donations will go to the American Red Cross. This will help the American Red Cross to respond and help people recover from the effects of the storm.
The end date for the program will be determined based on customer response.
In addition, Publix Super Markets Charities is making a $100,000 donation to the American Red Cross to help support relief efforts in Puerto Rico due to Hurricane Fiona.
