Publix Super Markets Supports March of Dimes' March for Babies
Publix – “Not just a supermarket”
We’re Making a Difference in the Communities We Serve
Join Publix Super Markets in the quest to increase healthy birth rates by supporting the March of Dimes fundraising campaign in all Publix stores through April 27. March of Dimes is a leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. They work to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
Customers are encouraged to make a donation at the registers. Paper cutouts will be posted at the front of each store proudly displaying the names of customers who donate. But, don’t delay. The campaign ends April 27.
Publix has supported the March of Dimes for more than 15 years. “Our customers and associates have trusted us to support organizations and programs that make a difference in the communities in which we live and work,” said Maria Brous, Publix Super Markets director of media and community relations. “We are passionate about the health and wellness of our customers and supporting healthier moms and babies is an extension of who we are.
It's no coincidence that the Publix March of Dimes campaign takes place during the same time that the Annual March for Babies takes place around the country. Publix is the #2 March for Babies Team in the country. Publix customers and associates raised an incredible $4.5 million in 2012 and $43 million since 1995. In 2013 the March of Dimes celebrates its 75th Anniversary and its ongoing work to help babies get a healthy start in life.
Join Publix Super Markets and let’s celebrate 75 years of healthy babies with March of Dimes. Together let's raise awareness of the need to continue the lifesaving research to advocate and educate health care professionals and families.
