Employees from the Walmart Distribution Center on USA Parkway will volunteer for our 20th annual "Share Your Christmas" drive-by food drive on Friday.
In fact, the center gives millions of dollars in donations to local charities.
And - an angel tree inside the center is just a small part of that giving.
Walmart employees who work there are making sure 140 children identified by the "Committee to Aid Abused Women" and the Children's Cabinet will have gifts under the tree.
"Volunteerism always pays. If we can get 50 people to volunteer for any event, then Walmart foundation will give $5,000 to that organization - on top of the time we give the organization to help it achieve its goal," says Ron
So far, the Walmart Distribution Center has given $250,000 to local charities in northern Nevada. That doesn't count the 2.5 million pounds of food and the $50,000 grant they've given to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.
You're welcome to donate food for the food bank during our 20th annual "Share Your Christmas Drive-By Food Drive." It's all day long this Friday from 5:00am until 6:00pm. Stop by the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, the Governor's Mansion in Carson City or the Carson Valley Inn in Minden. You don't even have to get out of your car, and we will make sure your donations get taken care of.
