BENTONVILLE, AR (KFVS) - Walmart has committed to provide an additional $200,000 in product and cash support to the Midwest and South to help aid tornado and flood relief efforts.

This comes in $50,000 in product donations and $150,000 in grants to organizations responding to impacted communities such as Salvation Army Central and Southern territories.

A Anne Hatfield, spokesperson with Walmart Corporate Communications said, “It is those organizations to determine how to best serve those impacted by the recent storms.”

“The impact of these tornados and historic floods continues to affect our associates, our customers and communities across the Midwest and South,” said Julie Gehrki, vice president, philanthropy at Walmart. “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.”

The company gave $150,000 in March 2019.
