Photo Right: Can the Marion County Publix stores set a record?  You bet they can!!  17,430 diapers collected in just two weeks (with some assistance from Mojo's Grill).  The Grand Oaks Plaza store collected the highest number ... 3,713!  A big thank you to all the store managers and their teams for making this happen.
