Publix Super Markets, Inc.
For an impressive sixth year in a row, Publix Super Markets remains the number one March of Dimes corporate partner, continuing their efforts to tackle the nation’s maternal and infant health crisis. The grocery giant successfully raised more than $5.4 million in 2021 through their register campaign, bringing their total 26-year contribution to the organization to $95 million.
“For more than two decades Publix has inspired their community to help ensure all moms and babies have the best possible start” said Stacey D. Stewart, President and CEO of March of Dimes. “We are grateful for all of their dedicated associates and customers who have worked together as a distinct community to raise critical funds to further our mission. March of Dimes is looking forward to seeing this collaboration flourish for many years to come.”
Publix, based in Lakeland, Florida, with 1,272 retail stores in seven states -- Alabama (81), Florida (818), Georgia (192), North Carolina (49), South Carolina (64), Tennessee (49), and Virginia (19) -- has worked tirelessly alongside the March of Dimes as a champion for healthy families. Their annual in-store campaign, which raises funds one dollar at time at the register, coupled with associate giving, has achieved remarkable results in support of healthy moms and strong babies.
“We’re honored to once again be recognized as March of Dimes’ No. 1 corporate partner,” said Publix Director of Community Relations Dwaine Stevens. “Each year, our customers and associates give so generously to support healthier moms and stronger babies. We’re proud of our 26-year history with March of Dimes and helping them provide every baby the best possible start.”
The March of Dimes annual retail campaign is Publix’s largest-grossing customer-facing fundraising campaign, and has the highest associate engagement, with thousands participating at March for Babies celebrations in their local communities.
