PUBLIX: Publix employees and customers recently wrapped up their 27th annual Miracle Balloon campaign, raising a record $5,655,244  for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

From May 31 to June 16, Publix miracle makers sold CMN Hospitals’ Miracle Balloon coupons at the register to generous customers. The coupons cost $1, $3 and $5 and offered values of $5.50, $10 and $20 respectively on a variety of products with all donations going to a local CMN Hospital.

A total of 1,187 Publix stores participated in the fundraiser benefitting 27 member hospitals. Funds raised during the 17-day campaign effort will help hospitals in communities where Publix operates procure life-saving equipment and provide research, education and outreach programs. Nationally, the stores surpassed their fundraising total by 8 percent over 2017.

Since 1992, Publix has raised more than $49 million.
