Thanks to everyone who took time from their busy schedules to come out in support of our 16th annual Allstar Teeball game this past weekend. Associates from Hickory, Conover and Granite Falls' Wal-Mart locations brought drinks, water, coolers and ice. It was a big help having your team on the field with us again this year.
I thought I heard someone say, "We really didn't do that much". You did a lot more than you think. The fact that "Wal-Mart" understands what we are doing and have felt lead to send volunteers out to interact with us on a personal level means so much.
An Excerpt taken from the Wal-Mart Foundation page of the Wal-Mart website (http://walmartstores.com/CommunityGiving/203.aspx): "In all of our giving efforts, we strive to meet the unmet needs of underserved populations and support organizations that give individuals access to a better life. We believe in operating globally and giving back locally. We encourage our associates to support programs that make a positive difference in their communities through volunteer efforts and financial contributions. We involve our associates in determining how Walmart Foundation dollars are used to support causes that are important to them."
