Publix awards $60,000 to Children's Museum of the Lowcountry

  • Wednesday, September 3, 2014

The Children's Museum of the Lowcountry (CML) announced today that it is receiving $60,000 to be given over the next three years from Publix Super Markets Charities to support the museum's kid-sized Publix Market exhibit. The grocery store exhibit, a favorite of both children and their grown-ups, will continue to focus on its interactive and hands-on approach to educating children on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.

This grant connects Publix Super Markets Charities, a corporate giving leader, with issues that are important to families and provides a tangible demonstration of the charity's interest in the lives of Lowcountry families, as well as its strong support of education in our community.

The entire exhibit experience of the Publix Market builds upon CML's successful self-directed, interactive approach to education by offering authentic opportunities to discover the importance of nutrition and the value of making healthy eating choices while shopping in the market made just for CML's small guests. The museum's tiniest visitors improve their matching skills as they shop from a grocery list, develop their sorting and counting skills as they place their items in bags and begin to enrich their vocabulary by learning the names of foods they eat every day. Older children sharpen their math, estimation and organization skills in various parts of the Publix Market. They can weigh fruits, vegetables and deli meats, scan groceries and count money while working the cash register, or plan healthy, nutritious meals by using My Plate to develop an eating plan and organize recipes into grocery lists.

“Publix Charities is proud to partner with the Children's Museum of the Lowcountry to bring this fun and educational exhibit to our youngest customers,” said Kelly Williams-Puccio, executive director of Publix Super Markets Charities.
