As the Salvation Army faces a shortfall to its kettle campaign this Christmas, Walmart is stepping in to contribute.
The retailer will match donations made by individuals in its stores nationwide up to $100,000.
Walmart Canada will also contribute $70,000 to CTV Toy Mountain in Winnipeg, Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, and the Ontario Great Lakes.
Funds will be used to purchase new toys that will be distributed to children in need this Christmas.
The Christmas kettle campaign has a fundraising goal of $21 million. The Winnipeg arm of the campaign is hoping to raise $351,000.
