Publix : Super Markets Charities Donates $2.5M to Help With Housing and Shelter Programs Throughout the Southeast

12/03/2020 | 10:31am EST

Today, on National Roof Over Your Head Day, Publix Super Markets Charities (PSMC) is pleased to announce it will be donating $2.5 million to support 113 Habitat for Humanity affiliates and 76 additional organizations providing housing and shelter services across the Southeast.

“A home often represents stability and independence in one’s life. In what has already been a difficult year, there are far too many people in our country struggling with housing insecurity,” said Publix Super Markets Charities Executive Director Kelly Williams-Puccio. “Through this donation, we remain committed to supporting partners like Habitat for Humanity to help build hope in our communities. We are proud to carry on the legacy of George Jenkins, our founder, to do good, together, for those in need.”

Over the last 6 years, PSMC has donated more than $25 million to Habitat for Humanity affiliates and other nonprofit organizations providing housing and shelter services throughout the states where Publix operates. This latest $2.5 million donation reinforces PSMC’s commitment to meeting the basic needs of the communities it serves through transitional support, client service programs and financial support for housing.

“With so many people across our nation without access to decent and affordable housing, we are grateful for the continued support of Publix Super Markets Charities,” said HabiJax President and CEO Monte Walker. “Through PSMC’s generosity, we are able to help families put roofs over their heads and realize their dreams of homeownership.”

PSMC began its support of Habitat for Humanity more than 30 years ago with its first contribution to Habitat for Humanity of East Polk County (Winter Haven, Florida). To learn more about PSMC’s efforts, please visit publixcharities.org/hope.

George Jenkins, founder of Publix Super Markets and affectionately known as Mr. George, believed in giving. From the day he opened his first Publix, he made sure his associates, customers and community were taken care of. In 1966, Mr. George established the foundation with the vision that it would continue giving long after he was gone. Publix Super Markets Charities remains committed to serving the communities in which Publix operates.
