Celebrating the Power of Partnership: Publix and Heart of Florida United Way

Thank You, Publix for being our #1 Global Corporate Leader!

As our annual Publix Appreciation Week ends, we are celebrating over 40 years of a remarkable journey shared by Publix and the entire United Way network. This partnership that has not only endured but flourished — demonstrating the power of collective action in supporting our communities. Our longstanding relationship with Publix stands out as a testament to what we can achieve together with a great partner. 

At the heart of this partnership is a shared commitment to improving lives and addressing pressing community needs.  

Publix’s recent workplace campaign is a shining example of this commitment, with associates pledging nearing an impressive $2 million to Heart of Florida United Way.  

This remarkable generosity underscores the deep-rooted culture of giving at Publix and reflects the spirit of their associates, who not only donate funds but also volunteer their time and talents. 

What makes our partnership with Publix unique is its direct impact on our local communities. The funds raised locally stay local, enabling Heart of Florida United Way to address pressing community issues right here in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole Counties.  

Publix associates also contribute to HFUW’s mission through their volunteer work — with many Publix associates volunteering through initiatives like our annual Thanksgiving Project.  

We are grateful to Publix, their associates, and Publix Super Markets Charities for their unwavering support and commitment to the full United Way network, including Heart of Florida United Way. As partners, we have witnessed the transformative power of unity and the profound difference we can make when we come together for the common good.  

This is what happens when we LIVE UNITED!
