For the second consecutive year, Publix was named United Way’s No. 1 Global Corporate Leader, thanks to the company’s most recent workplace campaign where Publix associates pledged $37.8 million to United Way, with Publix Super Market Charities committing an additional $24.5 million, bringing the total contribution to $62.3 million.
