Lakeland, Florida-based Publix customers and employees donated more than $1.1 million in a 10-day point-of-sale campaign in support of global Red Cross relief efforts for those affected by the crisis in Ukraine.

Donations will be used to distribute food, deliver medicine and medical supplies, assist with evacuations and help provide shelter. The donation campaign began on March 17.

“Once again, our customers and associates have shown their commitment to helping others in times of great need,” said Dwaine Stevens, Publix’s director of community relations. “Their generosity helps provide humanitarian aid to people affected by the crisis. We are grateful to work with our customers and employees to do good, together.”

“On behalf of our Red Cross partners around the world, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for this generous donation,” said Eric Corliss, American Red Cross regional CEO. “The giving spirit of Publix’s customers and associates continues to provide important aid to people in their time of need. We’re grateful for their support.”

Publix, the largest employee-owned company in the U.S. with more than 230,000 associates, currently operates 1,297 stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

For 24 consecutive years, the company has been recognized by Fortune as a great place to work. In addition, Publix’s dedication to quality and customer service is recognized among the top in the grocery business. 

Since 2009, Publix has donated more than $2 billion in food to people in need and has pledged an additional $2 billion in food donations by 2030. And over 12 years, Publix’s register campaigns and produce contributions have resulted in more than $125 million in food donations.
