Union City – When Publix customers at Fayette County store locations donated to the ‘Food For All” campaign at the check-out register, they gave hope to individuals and families associated with The Children’s Village. Proceeds of $6,867.24 from the annual campaign benefitted The Children’s Village at Christian City.
Accepting the generous donation, Phil Kouns, COO of The Children’s Village, applauded Publix’ initiative as a corporation to raise money to help fight hunger and increase the level of self-sufficiency for those in need. “Ongoing support from annual campaigns like “Food For All” makes such a difference for The Children’s Village at Christian City. Because of faithful support from the community, we are able to minister to the needs of abused and abandoned children who now live safely on our campus,” Kouns said.
The Children’s Village at Christian City is a 501(c)3 non-profit located in Union City, Ga. For 50 years, The Children’s Village has offered life services and a safe haven for children in crisis, aged 5-17.
