    With all of the Publix stores opening around here, just wanted to remind people to check with your child's school to see if they participate in Publix Partners, their give back program. Our PTA handles ours & you have a to have a special card to swipe for your organization (since they don't do a loyalty card). It is a very generous give back if you get enough people participating & it's free to participate.
