In response to the floods that have impacted midwestern states including Iowa and Nebraska, Walmart, Sam’s Club and the Walmart Foundation have committed to provide $100,000 in support through cash and product donations.
The commitment includes $50,000 in product donations to organizations providing support to impacted areas, and cash commitments of $50,000 to the Red Cross and United Way, which are providing relief services to affected communities. As part of this commitment, Walmart said it is also working closely with local officials and government entities to help meet the needs of those affected.
“The impact of these historic floods is affecting our associates, our customers and the communities we serve,” said Kyla Luckie, regional general manager for Walmart in Nebraska, Iowa and northeast Kansas. “In addition to cash donations, our local stores and distribution centers have been providing product to meet basic needs in the affected communities. We will also continue to work with non-profits, first responders, local officials and government organizations to identify needs and provide additional support.”
