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 nonprofit to respond and help people recover from the effects of the storm.
The end date of the program will be determined by 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.
“Our Publix family extends beyond our local neighborhoods,” said director of community relations Dwaine Stevens. “With many of our associates and customers having family members living in Puerto Rico, we are grateful to be able to help.”
