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!
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
