Publix Offers Coupons For Donations To Help Support A New Children’s Hospital

Thursday, May 26, 2016
Now through June 11, Publix Super Markets are inviting customers to “Put Your Money Where the Miracles Are” by donating to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. In exchange for a $1, $3 or $5 donation, Publix customers will receive a set of coupons with savings of up to $20 on popular brands. Funds raised from the coupon campaign will help provide life-saving care for local kids.
 
This campaign marks the 25th anniversary of Publix supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Since 1992, Publix has raised more than $34 million for the charity. Funds raised locally during the campaign will benefit The Believe Campaign to build phase one of the new Children’s Hospital in Chattanooga.
 
“In 2015, our five area Publix locations raised more than $13,000 for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger,” said Rebecca Brinkley, director of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. “Each year they work even harder than the year before to raise funds and help support our hospital’s mission to treat sick and injured children in our area.”
 
“We’re incredibly grateful for 25 years of generous support from Publix,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Over the last several decades, we’ve seen advances in children’s healthcare that can be attributed in part to community contributions like those from Publix and its customers. For example, research shows nine out of 10 kids born with congenital heart defects now survive into adulthood and childhood cancer death rates continue to decline. We congratulate Publix on the positive impact it has had in the neighborhoods it’s served over the past 25 years and look forward to the medical advances to come.”
 
Those who participate in the register campaign will receive coupons from the following vendors: Kellogg’s, Mars (Mars Petcare, Mars Chocolate and Wrigley), good2grow kids juices, Glad, Coca-Cola and Dasani, Georgia Pacific (Angel Soft Bath Tissue and Sparkle Paper Towels), Oil-Dri (Cat’s Pride.) and Frito Lay.
 
More than 1,000 Publix stores in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee are participating in the fundraiser benefiting 24 member hospitals. Visit here for 25 reasons community members are grateful for 25 years of Publix supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
