Volunteerism Always Pays for Walmart Employees

February 14, 2013 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

Since 2009, Walmart has been a critical partner in our fight against hunger through the success of our Retail Food Rescue Program and other initiatives. Now, with the growing demand for emergency food, Walmart is doing even more to help our neighbors in need.

This year they’ve made a generous commitment to increase their financial, food and volunteer support, with a goal to provide enough food for 5.2 million meals for families at risk of hunger. As part of their initiative, Walmart is campaigning to raise employee awareness about hunger and connect employees with volunteer opportunities here at Second Harvest Heartland with their “Volunteerism Always Pays” program. Through the program, managers from 30 stores and over 300 associates will join us to sort, label and package food to distribute to our neighbors in need this year. Since beginning to serve, Walmart employees have given over 1,700 hours of their time and energy— the equivalent of more than 200 full business days.

Partners like Walmart play a vital role in helping us provide more meals to more people in our community, and we can’t thank them enough for their donations of time and resources!
