For 39 years, Publix has been a champion for Special Olympics Florida’s athletes. Their support proliferates our community in more ways than one.
Collectively, Publix has raised over $35 million for athletes in Florida but their support exists beyond the annual Torch Icon Campaign and Special Olympics Florida Golf Classic. Publix also continues to demonstrate their dedication to inclusion and acceptance by hiring associates that are reflective of their communities, and that includes hiring associates with intellectual disabilities.
To celebrate Publix Appreciation Week, stop by your local Publix store and thank them for their year-round support of Special Olympics Florida’s athletes. Be creative! Make a card, poster or sign that helps shine a light onto the great work they do.
When you visit, be sure to take a photo and email it to us so that we can help share our gratitude with Publix in person and on social media. It’s our hope that Publix Appreciation Week will bring smiles to the faces of our Publix associates, just as they have worked to make our athletes smile for nearly 40 years.
