Hospice of Fayette County was recently awarded a $2,500 community grant from Walmart as part of its continuous effort to give back to local communities.
Globally Walmart and the Walmart Foundation gave $1.4 billion in cash and in-kind contributions during the fiscal year ending Jan. 31, 2015. The community grants program awards grants of $250 to $2,500 through Walmart stores, Sam’s Club, and Logistics Facilities to eligible nonprofit organizations within the service area of the facility.
“We are truly grateful to be the recipient of this community grant. This will go a long way in helping and supporting the patients and families we serve in our community,” said Holly Cottrill, marketing and fundraising coordinator.
Walmart believes in operating globally and giving back locally – creating impact in the neighborhoods where we live and work.
