The Canadian Red Cross and Walmart stores across the country are teaming up beginning today to help raise funds for Canadians preparing for and dealing with disasters.
Until October 23, all Canadian Walmart stores — including 15 in Manitoba — will ask customers if they wish to make a financial donation to support the Red Cross.
“We appreciate the unwavering generosity of Walmart’s Manitoba shoppers, who have donated so much to the Walmart campaign in past years,” said Shawn Feely, Canadian Red Cross provincial director for Manitoba.
“All contributions made in Manitoba, stay in Manitoba and ensure we can provide disaster response for people in need. The donations will also allow us to help prepare Manitobans for emergencies.”
