Publix Raising Funds For Children's Hospital At Erlanger With Register Campaign

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Publix Super Markets in the Chattanooga area is encouraging customers to make a donation at the register for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, a member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. 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.

"No one understands the importance of local giving and impact better than Publix customers and employees, and no one is more deserving than children who enter a hospital for critical treatment,” said John Lauck, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals president and CEO. “We’re thrilled that with new supermarket openings over the past year, Publix is now able to help 21 of our member hospitals, including Children’s Hospital at Erlanger in Chattanooga, provide the absolute best in pediatric care.”
