Walmart honors military families with $1.1M donation


FORT BRAGG, N.C. Walmart announced that, through a $1.1 million donation, it is helping more than 10,000 military children and families receive free toys, books, Walmart gift cards and gift packages. In addition, the company announced that it is honoring fallen veterans by helping to place wreaths on national cemeteries and memorial sites.

Walmart joined with Operation Homefront and Wreaths Across America in Fort Bragg, N.C., on Dec. 4 to launch the program, part of "Walmart Gives Back," a holiday giving initiative focused on hunger relief and support for military families.


"Walmart has a history of supporting our troops. This holiday season, we recognize the sacrifices of our deployed servicemen and women - and their families back at home," said Margaret McKenna, president of the Walmart Foundation. "We know that many military families have a tough time during the holidays. They miss their loved ones who are away, and we hope that our efforts will make their holiday easier and better."
