On Tuesday, April 11, 2017, two Publix district managers and three store managers presented UWVFC President/CEO Dennis Burns with a check totaling $1,140,946.81. The gift’s impact upon the community could possibly double thanks to state and federal matching dollars through United Way funded programs.
Publix remains the largest business workplace partner to UWVFC as well as most United Way chapters in Florida.
“It is difficult to express the amount of gratitude the United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties extends to Publix, its management and employees,” said Burns. “We greatly hope more business partners will help the way Publix has in meeting funding requests from local agencies and fulfilling our mission in the community.”
