Walmart representatives presented grants to several local non-profits this morning to support their efforts to make a difference in Butler and Warren counties.
The grants — totaling $100,000 — were presented during ceremonies at the Walmart Supercenter stores in West Chester Twp. and Franklin.
Walmart hosted seven check presentations around the state of Ohio today to celebrate a “Day of Giving” in which 12 non-profit organizations received $356,000 in grants from the Walmart Foundation’s Ohio State Giving Council. Other areas impacted by the donation included Marietta, Logan, Ashland County, Columbus and Cleveland.
The State Giving Program awards grants to organizations that have a long-lasting, positive impact on communities across the U.S.
Grants are awarded to non-profit organizations that serve a particular state or region and work to fight hunger, support children and education, promote environmental sustainability or provide workforce development opportunities.
