Publix honors associates for their community involvement

LAKELAND, Fla. , April 17 /Businesswire/ - Publix recognized six associates with the Mr. George Community Service Award for outstanding commitment to their communities during the company’s annual stockholders’ meeting.

Since 1995, 153 associates have received this prestigious honor.

“Mr. George once stated that we’re not only in the grocery business, we’re in the people business,” said Publix CEO Kevin Murphy. “And that means taking care of our customers, communities and each other. Our 2024 recipients take these words to heart and are fulfilling our mission to be involved as responsible citizens in the communities we serve.”
