As Walmart’s associates, customers, friends and family continue putting their lives back together, Walmart is launching a register campaign to support the American Red Cross at all Walmart stores and Sam’s Clubs across the U.S. between September 2-8 to help those affected by Ida get the resources they need to recover and begin rebuilding.
The company will match dollar-for-dollar customer donations up to $5 million through the close of business Wednesday, September 8. Customers and members will have the opportunity to donate any amount, or round-up their purchase to the nearest dollar with the change going to the American Red Cross to support communities impacted by hurricanes, floods and fires in 2021. That means these monies can also be allocated to assist with Hurricane Ida recovery.
The register campaign is in addition to the $5 million commitment for response efforts to Hurricane Ida announced Monday, for a total of up to $10 million from Walmart, the Walmart Foundation and Sam’s Club to help with disaster relief and response.
Louisiana residents help each other, especially in times like these. Walmart and Sam’s Club are providing an easy way for customers to give back by purchasing already needed recovery supplies and we’re matching their efforts. We hope you’ll share this news with your readers and viewers as a way they can help their neighbors to the south and others recovering from natural disasters.
