Area Publix stores raised $13,204 for the Children’s Hospital of Georgia through an annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in-store fundraiser.
Money generated from the campaign will help fund equipment and technology upgrades at the children’s hospital, which cares for about 70,000 children each year.
It is the 22nd year that Publix associates and customers have raised money through Miracle Balloons at the register.
“As a not-for-profit hospital, we rely on the generosity of donors and supporters like Publix. Every dollar raised helps us provide unique, specialized pediatric care,” said Catherine Stewart, the Children’s Miracle Network development coordinator at Children’s Hospital of Georgia.
