MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Publix Super Market Charities has donated $5,000 to Savannah’s Playground. The check was hand delivered Monday to Myrtle Beach City Hall Friday by a Publix representative, according to a post on the Myrtle Beach City Government Facebook.              

Public Information Officer Mark Kruea accepted the donation for the playground. A letter read, “On behalf of Publix Super Markets Charities, it is my pleasure to enclose our donation in the amount of $5,000 for an Oodle Swing at your one-of-a-kind playground in Myrtle Beach." The letter adds, "We are proud to partner with your organization."
