Wal-Mart continues charity with $100K for Haitian hurricane victims

BY CSA STAFF

BENTONVILLE, Ark. Wal-Mart announced a donation of $100,000 to the American Red Cross to support disaster relief for Haitians that have been impacted by Hurricanes Gustav and Ike in further efforts to provide aid to neighborhoods and people affected by the latest wave of destructive hurricanes.

“Because we touch communities throughout the Americas, we can help people in times of need in so many ways,” said Craig Herkert, president and ceo of the Americas for Wal-Mart Stores.

Wal-Mart Puerto Rico also made its own $7,000 donation to the Red Cross and a $3,000 donation to the Caribbean Haitian Committee. Several Walmart stores in Florida also held supply drives last week to collect hurricane relief supplies for victims.

“Wal-Mart is committed to helping these devastated communities,” said Joaquin Gonzalez Varela, Wal-Mart’s regional vp. “We know many of our Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club associates, especially in Florida, have family and friends in these areas.”

Wal-Mart has long been recognized as a corporate leader in the area of disaster relief. Responding to the impact of Hurricanes Ike and Gustav in Louisiana and Texas, Wal-Mart recently committed $2.5 million to assist with relief efforts. The company in 2005 helped the victims of Hurricane Katrina by donating more than $32 million in cash to aid emergency relief efforts. Earlier this year, Wal-Mart donated $3 million for disaster relief and reconstruction following the earthquakes in China.
