Now through June 11, Publix Super Markets are inviting customers to “Put Your Money Where the Miracles Are” by donating to the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. In exchange for a $1, $3 or $5 donation, Publix customers will receive a set of coupons with savings of up to $20 on popular brands. Funds raised from the coupon campaign will help provide life-saving care for local kids.
This campaign marks the 25th anniversary of Publix supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since 1992, Publix customers and associates have raised more than $34 million for the charity. Funds raised during the three-week campaign will help provide vital treatments and services, equipment, research and charity care.
“We’re incredibly grateful for 25 years of generous support from Publix,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Over the last several decades, we’ve seen advances in children’s healthcare that can be attributed in part to community contributions like those from Publix and its customers. For example, research shows nine out of 10 kids born with congenital heart defects now survive into adulthood and childhood cancer death rates continue to decline. We congratulate Publix on the positive impact it has had in the neighborhoods it’s served over the past 25 years and look forward to the medical advances to come.”
“For more than 25 years, we have shared the vision of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and have been proud supporters of their mission, along with our loyal customers,” said Maria Brous, Publix director of media and community relations. “Together, since 1992, we have raised more than $34 million for CMN Hospitals. We take great pride in and thank our associates and customers for making a positive impact in our communities and to our children.”
Those who participate in the register campaign will receive coupons from the following vendors: Kellogg’s, Mars (Mars Petcare, Mars Chocolate and Wrigley), good2grow kids juices, Glad, Coca-Cola and Dasani, Georgia Pacific (Angel Soft Bath Tissue and Sparkle Paper Towels), Oil Dri (Cat’s Pride) and Frito Lay.
