Walmart La Grange Gives Grant to Help Turtle Wing, PAT Daycare Collaboration

For nearly 40 years, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have been committed to strengthening local communities around the world. There are four Community initiatives: Inspiring Associates to Give Their Time and Money, Supporting Associates, Mitigating Disasters, and serving Local Communities.

Part of serving local communities includes facility giving. Walmart awards grants to local organizations making a difference on key issues in communities where Walmart Stores, clubs and distribution center associates live and work.

In FY15, over 46,000 grants equaling more than $47 million were provided to organizations, including law enforcement agencies, fire departments, schools, recreation centers and more. Turtle Wing Foundation recently received $1,000 from the Walmart Community Grant program to help fund their collaborative effort with the Schulenburg/Weimar Area Parents as Teachers (PAT) program. The conditions being addressed by this program are in response to the family dynamics presented by both parents working and children spending most of their waking hours with a child care provider.
