"Barnett is also on the board of The Children’s Movement of Florida. While she’s steered millions of dollars toward children’s programs as the head of Publix’s charitable arm, the daughter of Publix founder George W. Jenkins gives from her own pocket as well. The private donations funding 15 Florida United Ways participation in the ReadingPals program to boost children’s reading skills in lower economic neighborhoods come from Barnett, 60, and husband Barney Barnett."
