Publix supermarkets along the east coast once again participated in the Light the Torch campaign this January to raise critical funds for Special Olympics programs. The at-the-register campaign relies on the consistent efforts of Publix store associates and generosity of Publix customers.
We are thrilled to announce that in Virginia, Publix supermarkets raised over $98,000 to support our mission and athletes! After the challenging year that was 2020, this was an extraordinary way to kick off 2021!
We are grateful to Publix for their exceptional support of our important work, and desire to raise the bar each year of the fundraising campaign. We would also like to thank our athletes for supporting the partnership through virtual and in-person engagement with Publix associates and customers.
