Publix kicks off annual support for Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children

From May 31 – June 16, Publix stores will raise millions of dollars to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Associates at Publix will empower their customers to become miracle makers by offering miracle coupons for purchase.

Throughout Central Florida, Miracle coupons will raise critical funds during the annual three-week register campaign and help Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children procure life-saving equipment and provide a variety of programs and services that might not otherwise be possible.

Coupons cost $1, $3 and $5 and offer values of $5.50, $10 and $20 from vendors like Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Cereal, Mars (Mars Petcare, Mars Chocolate and Wrigley), Johnson & Johnson, Coca-Cola and Dasani, Georgia Pacific (Angel Soft Bath Tissue and Sparkle Paper Towels), Oil-Dri (Cat’s Pride®), Pure Leaf Tea and Frito Lay.

Collected funds will benefit children like twins Kendall & Carson, who were born 14 weeks early and immediately placed on life support in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies. Both twins had an intraventricular brain hemorrhage and were diagnosed with chronic lung disease. Carson also battled hydrocephalus and had to have a shunt placed to drain the fluid which was creating pressure on brain.

Today, Kendall and Carson are thriving thanks to the amazing medical care and rehabilitative services they received at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer, and their parents are grateful they had access to a specialized hospital when their kids needed it most!

Funds raised help purchase the life-saving equipment needed to save more kids like Kendall & Carson.

 

For 27 years, Publix has supported CMN Hospitals in the communities it serves, during which customers and employees have raised more than $44 million for the organization since 1992.
