Annual Walmart Campaign Raises 767,403 Meals!
In April, Walmart stores throughout our service area launched their annual Fight Hunger Spark Change campaign. For four weeks, Walmart and its customers helped raise funds to feed our hungry neighbors. This year’s campaign included three ways to get involved:
- Making a monetary donation at a Walmart checkout
- Buying participating products in-store or online – one item purchased meant one meal secured
- Raising awareness through #FightHunger hashtag – for each online act of support, Walmart donated $0.90
Thanks to the dedication of Walmart stores in Second Harvest Heartland’s service area, we are excited to announce this year’s Fight Hunger Spark Change campaign raised enough funds to help provide 767,403 meals to families in need!
Thank you also to everyone who supported the campaign on social media and at their local Walmart stores. Your tremendous efforts paid off, making more than three quarters of a million much-needed meals possible!
