WHERE SHOPPING IS A PLEASURE!
The amazing folks at PUBLIX made a visit to the Center this week to donate a check for over $28,000! The revenue comes from the Children's Cancer Center Holiday Cards and annual Calendar program – the products of which have retailed at over 105 PUBLIX Super Markets for nearly three decades of holiday seasons.
The annual campaign is not only one of our most traditional, it is also one of the keystones of the CCC annual fundraising budget and we couldn't reach our goal without their help!
The PUBLIX stores' generous giving back policy means that each super market sells our Holiday Cards and Calendar without deducting any percentage whatsoever for their efforts…the Children's Cancer Center retains 100%. Which means that the price you pay for your cards is the amount of money we receive as a donation!
Thank you PUBLIX! Now that's shopping with pleasure!
