Walmart is known for rolling back pricing, but the company – and its employees – put equal effort into stepping up to help the community. Since 1992, local Walmart and Sam's Club associates have contributed more than $3 million to Rady Children's. Walmart is the number one Children's Miracle Network Hospitals sponsor and one of the top five Rady Children's corporate sponsors.
As a company, Walmart enthusiastically supports our Miracle Month of May campaign; In 2010, associates raised more than$323,000 selling virtual icons! Managers and associates also participated in our Shamu & You Walk and this last year, signing up more than 215 walkers and receiving the award for Largest Walk Team. These phenomenal results can be attributed to the leadership of their management team in developing a philanthropic culture throughout the workplace. They truly understand the importance of giving back to the communities in which they serve.
