Building the Block: Publix Supermarket Charities

With nails, paint, and a pantry full of groceries, Atlanta Habitat’s 2017 Publix Supermarket Charities Build is helping meet milestones for one Atlanta Habitat homeowner. Bertha Ross is thrilled about her home and praises the work of Publix volunteers. “It feels like we’ve known each other forever. It was wonderful working along with them to build my house.” Ross extends thanks to both Atlanta Habitat and Publix associates.

Publix Charities has supported Habitat for Humanity International since 1989 and has donated millions of dollars to Habitat for Humanity affiliates. Publix Deli Associate Syleste Soah, who volunteers with the Atlanta Publix Supermarket Charities Build said, “Publix believes in helping others and I am always excited to help someone accomplish their dream of homeownership.”  Construction on the home is expected to be completed on Saturday, July 29, when it will be dedicated.
