Around 100 Walmart Associates gathered today at the Walmart Distribution Center in Henderson to present the Boys and Girls Club of North Central North Carolina a check for $5,000.
Walmart and the Boys and Girls Club enjoy a unique partnership. Last month, a number of Walmart Associates volunteered their time to help paint much of the Boys and Girls Club on Clark Street in Henderson.
Robert Avery, maintenance operations manger for the Walmart Distribution Center, said, “We appreciate the opportunity to help in the community. We want to thank the 53 associates that volunteered around 260 hours at the Boys and Girls Club last month. We are grateful to be able to help the Boys and Girls Club.”
Mary Ann Avery, Resource Development Director for the Boys and Girls Club of North Central North Carolina, said, “Thanks Walmart for your continued support both financially and with the volunteers you provide. We’re so thankful that Walmart took the lead in helping us revitalize the Boys and Girls Club on Clark Street. We thank them for coming back to volunteer again in August.”
