135,000 Toys and 10,000 Coats For Underserved Children Thanks to Walmart Shoppers!
Walmart is certainly fulfilling the company’s mission to help people live better – this Christmas and beyond. With the company’s $1 million donation in support of our 122nd annual Red Kettle Campaign, The Salvation Army will be able to better meet the needs of families across America through food service, heat and utility assistance, and Christmas presents for underserved children.
On December 8, over 2,500 Walmart stores participated in the nationwide “Fill The Truck” event, where throughout the day, store visitors had the chance to buy Christmas presents for their community neighbors in need via The Salvation Army. Thanks to the efforts of shoppers, Walmart stores, and The Salvation Army’s beloved volunteers, over 135,000 toys and 10,000 coats were donated as Christmas presents for families in need throughout the United States, ensuring joy on that very special morning for children and parents alike.
To kick off the event, popular television host Nick Cannon surprised Walmart associates and guests at the Pleasant Grove location in Northwest Arkansas near the company’s headquarters, and even donated some of his own “Ncredible” brand headphones to The Salvation Army’s truck. A huge thanks to Nick for his support!
And thank you, Walmart, for once again Doing the Most Good with The Salvation Army!
