It’s Always Sunny Here Thanks to Walmart Volunteers

Thursday, July 14, 2011

The Salvation Army Community Center in West Philadelphia is getting a much needed makeover, thanks to an all hands on deck volunteer effort by Walmart.

The project is part of the Walmart Foundation’s 5-year, $2 billion commitment to fight hunger in the U.S. with food donations, $250 million in grants at the national and local levels, and collaboration with government and non-profit organizations to reach more families in need.

300 Philadelphia-area Walmart volunteers are working this week to complete the renovation, which includes cleaning, painting, installation of new fixtures, artwork and shelving, and food and clothing donations. The volunteers are specifically focusing on updating the community center’s public spaces and food service/emergency response areas.

The Salvation Army is incredibly grateful for this support that will benefit individuals and families in need!

Visit The Salvation Army Philadelphia’s Facebook page (Salvation Army Philadelphia) and Twitter feed (@SalArmyPhilly) for project updates, and find more photos updated daily at Walmart Philadelphia’s page.
