Publix Super Markets has established a register campaign to allow customers and associates at its Tennessee stores to make donations to a relief fund for those impacted by recent flooding.
Donations can be made for any amount by adding to grocery totals when checking out at the register in Tennessee stores. Donations will be channeled through the American Red Cross to help those affected by recent flooding.
“In times of need, our customers and associates trust us to provide a way for them to donate to help their neighbors,” said Publix Director of Community Relations Dwaine Stevens. “Our register donation campaign provides an easy and effective way to support those affected by this catastrophic flooding. We’re grateful to our customers and associates who give so generously to help their communities.”
