This week, Walmart Stores is conducting a major volunteer effort to update and renovate The Salvation Army West Philadelphia Corps Community Center — specifically its public spaces and food service/emergency response areas.
The project is an extension of Walmart’s 5-year, $2 billion commitment to fight hunger in the U.S. with food donations, $250 million in grants at the national and local levels, associate and customer engagement, and collaboration with government and non-profit organizations to reach more families in need.
300 Philadelphia-area Walmart volunteers will work over the course of the week to complete the renovation, which includes cleaning, painting, installation of new fixtures, artwork and shelving, and food and clothing donations.
Walmart has engaged two of its major supplier partners, Glidden Paint and Linzer Paint Products, to make significant contributions to the effort, including the donation of 100 plus gallons of paint.
Walmart worked closely with the office of SERVEPhiladelphia to identify The Salvation Army West Philadelphia Corps Community Center as a food pantry in need of this type of support.
