As a result of Walmart’s recent Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign, local Walmart locations have made and incredible donation to the Ottawa Food Bank.
For an entire month earlier this year, Walmart’s across Canada were encouraging their customers to support local food banks in one of four ways. Customers could add a donation when online shopping, purchases specific promotional products – and those organizations would then donate, make a donation at the register, or donate food at their closest Walmart location.
Through this incredible initiative, local Walmart locations have collectively donated $77,307 to the Ottawa Food Bank!
We are so grateful for the support and the relationship we have with Walmart. Also thank you to all the customers who stepped up and made a donation. Your generosity is incredible and will make a difference to the Ottawa community.
Thank you to Food Banks Canada for being an incredible partner and helping to coordinate these efforts across the country.
These funds will help us with food purchases and the delivery of food to our member agency food programs using our routing software. This support is especially appreciate at this time, as donations are lower than usual this summer, and we anticipate to have to make more purchases as a result.
