US and World

(WIAT) — Walmart is increasing its contributions to those affected by flooding and tornadoes. Back in March, the company announced it was donating $150,000 to community organizations and local governments to help disaster relief. Now the retailer is donating another $250,000 to the fund.

The donations will help victims in 10 states including Alabama.

In the official press release, the vice president of Walmart stated,

The impact of these tornados and historic floods continues to affect our associates, our customers and communities across the Midwest and South. I want to thank our local stores and distribution centers, as well as the non-profits, first responders, local officials and government organizations who have all been working so hard to meet the needs of the affected communities we serve.

– Julie Gehrki, vice president, philanthropy at Walmart
