thanksgiving 131120 That Walmart uses money from a good-feelings slush fund to give people the impression that the Bentonvile Behemoth actually cares about hungry people is bad enough, but when the company leverages donations from outside the company to earn public-relations brownie points, well, I find such actions simply shameful. From Walmart fights hunger locally and nationally in Ohio's Lima News:
Wal-Mart announced Monday that Lima-area residents have generated a total of $31,980 for the West Ohio Food Bank. Through Wal-Mart’s Fight Hunger Spark Change campaign, families rallied together to help fight hunger in Wal-Mart stores and online. Nationwide, the campaign raised more than $10 million to support Feeding America and its affiliate food banks across the country. Altogether, 12 food banks in Ohio received more than $400,000 to support local hunger programs.
I have to wonder how many Walmart employees regularly visit one of those 12 food banks. Jeff Hess: Have Coffee Will Write.
