More than 7,500 Publix employees throughout the Southeast are serving their communities for the annual Publix Serves Day on April 2.

This is the sixth year for Publix Serves Day, which unites associates in community service.

“Publix encourages associates to support the communities we serve,” said Brenda Reid, media and community relations manager for Publix’s Atlanta Division. “Publix Serves Day gives us an opportunity to support those in need, especially organizations focused on the plight of the hungry and homeless.”

In Tennessee, more than 150 employees helped non-profit organizations in their communities with services such as feeding programs, landscaping, grounds improvements, painting and building repairs. Among the organizations benefiting from Publix volunteers on Publix Serves Day: Boys and Girls Club of Murfreesboro, Love Kitchen of Knoxville, Manna’s Hana Equestrian Riding Program for Children With Disabilities, Clarksville Parks and Recreation Memorial, Spring Hill Shower Up,  Two Rivers Middle School and YMCA Chattanooga.

In Georgia, more than 500 associates helped local non-profit organizations with food pantries, clothes closets and home repairs to people in need.

Other organizations receiving help from Publix volunteers in Georgia include Canton Angel House, Monroe Faith in Serving Humanity, Lawrenceville Family Promise Center, Fox Elementary School, Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter, Grand Lodge of Georgia, Atlanta Meals on Wheels, MUST Ministries Marietta, Salvation Army and The Place of Forsyth,
