Walmart Neighborhood Markets awards grants to El Paso non-profits as part of Day of Giving

 As part of a Health and Wellness Day of Giving, El Paso Walmart Neighborhood Markets committed to awarding grants to local non-profits.

“When a pandemic hit and our communities needed a trusted partner for their pharmacy needs, our Walmart teams were there. When going into a store was too risky and we needed curbside, delivery and other options, our teams were there. When the country had a vaccine that needed to be accessible to the masses, our teams were there,“ said Lisa Thornton, Walmart Neighborhood Market Health and Wellness Director for the region.

“Health and Wellness Day of Giving is one more example of how our health and wellness associates see a need in the community and are there to meet that need. By supporting local non-profit organizations that enhance the lives within the communities that we serve, we expand our impact and solidify our position as an organization that not only talks about caring but takes action to do so.”

Walmart Neighborhood Markets in El Paso have committed to awarding the following non-profits $1,500 each include:

• Child Crisis Center of El Paso
• Children with Disabilities Center
• El Paso Cops Helping Kids
• El Paso Diabetes & CCTE
• El Pasoans Fighting Hunger
• Guiding Star El Paso
• You Eat I Eat Community Unity Food Bank
• Rio Grande Cancer Foundation

In total, Walmart Neighborhood Markets have committed to awarding more than $1 million across the U.S., including $155,000 in Texas,
to local organizations that support health and wellness.
