Volunteer Day for Wal-Mart Managers

Wal-Mart Market # 111 donated $600 to Kids Wish a couple of weeks ago so we could buy some children’s bikes for the holiday season. This in itself was amazingly generous but there was more to come – you cannot put a price on time! Ten managers from the Market #111 store came to our warehouse today and volunteered their time, which was a huge contribution. They spent 4 hours here and got straight into it, doing phenomenal work!

Wal-Mart Volunteers at Kids Wish Network

While they were here, they packed age appropriate gift bags for our upcoming “Kids Wish Network on Tour” event. We thought they would get a lot done, but were delighted when they actually completed the project! In fact, they accomplished not only this but they then moved onto yet another project: putting CDs into their covers! This can be pretty repetitious work, but these ladies and gentlemen got it all done with smiles on their faces.

I don’t think they have any idea just how much they helped us out. Even though we reach out to children in crisis all over the United States, we are actually quite a small operation here in Holiday, FL and we appreciate our volunteers so much.

So from me and the thousands of children we reach out to each year;
Thank you Wal-Mart Market #111
