Sweet treats for a great cause and a couple of bucks!

Earlier this year, we expressed the warm and fuzzy feeling we Publix associates got because of the gratitude showered upon us in recognition of our efforts in supporting United Way.

Today, we get to pull back the curtain on one of the small ways we raise money to support of this incredible organization.  It’s a closely held secret, and we’re trusting you, our readers to use discretion with it: It’s our annual Human Resources Cupcake War challenge.

You see, we have some great foodies on staff (we are, after all, a grocery chain!) and each year they voluntarily pitch in their time and effort to produce delicacies. This year’s incredible winning cupcakes were: Wedding, Cookies and Cream, and Peanut Butter and Ganache.  Designed to make the mouth water and raise money for a great cause, we think this is one sweet fundraiser! And since it raised about $800 this year for the United Way, we think it’s a win-win!

Would you go all in and work for a company with a reputation for engaging employees in creative ways to benefit its local communities and drive lasting change? If so, consider joining Publix! We operate in seven states and employ more than 190,000.  Visit this page to apply for employment in one of our stores.
