Publix raises $4.4 million for Haiti relief


LAKELAND, Fla. Publix announced that its customers and associates raised more than $4.4 million in support of American Red Cross Haiti Relief & Development Fund during its three-and-a-half week register donation program.

“Words cannot express our sincere appreciation to our customers and associates for supporting the relief efforts in Haiti,” said Maria Brous, Publix director of media and community relations. “Because of their generosity, American Red Cross has been able to provide more than 3 million pre-packaged meals, distribute food and relief items to 37,000 families and are now producing 1.2 million liters of water per day. While the rebuilding of Haiti is sure to be a longer process, the outpouring of support for our neighbors was immediate and a community experience. ”

In a separate donation, Publix Super Markets Charities donated $100,000 to American Red Cross for relief efforts for the areas affected by the earthquake.
