The Boys & Girls Club of Alachua County announces that it has received a grant from Publix Super Markets Charities to fund Education Enrichment and After School Programs in Gainesville.
“Publix Super Markets Charities is a long time supporter of this important grant program,” said Jim Skiles, Chief Volunteer Officer of the Boys & Girls Club of Alachua County. “We are especially grateful during these uncertain economic times that we will we be able to continue to fund innovative projects that integrate the arts with math, science, language arts and other content areas.”
Publix Super Markets Charities was established by the founder of Publix George W. Jenkins, to improve life in our communities with a focus on youth and education. He was once asked, “If you hadn’t given away so much, how much do you think you would be worth today?” His response, without hesitation: “Probably nothing.” In tribute to his example, Publix gives to thousands of local projects annually.
