The Covington News - - LOCAL - STAFF RE­PORTS news@cov­news.com

Publix and its em­ploy­ees are do­ing their part to feed the hun­gry in New­ton County.

Publix do­nated $1,099 to the Cov­ing­ton-New­ton County United Way to pur­chase food for the less for­tu­nate in the county, and work­ers also helped send a truck­load of food to the Sal­va­tion Army food pantry.

In ad­di­tion, the Publix Foun­da­tion do­nated $18,600 to the United Way to be given to the var­i­ous lo­cal non­profit agencies the United Way sup­ports.

United Way Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Doris Strick­land said Publix is a huge sup­porter of the United Way, not­ing that the com­pany’s 102 lo­cal em­ploy­ees do­nated $24,000 to the United Way through em­ployee de­duc­tions.
