The campaign will help provide treatment, services, equipment and charitable care to sick and injured children treated at Chattanooga’s only children’s hospital. 

This year marks the 21 years that Publix associates and customers will rally to help hospitals like Children’s Hospital at Erlanger through the purchase of $1, $3 and $5 icons at store checkouts. In addition to helping fund a variety of life-saving treatments and services, Publix customers can receive in-store coupons as an incentive for their donation.
