    Wal-Mart donates $600,000 to four Kentucky charities
    By Karla Ward
    God's Pantry Food Bank, which serves 50 counties, including Fayette, received $200,000, Wal-Mart announced Monday.

    Marian Guinn, chief executive officer of God's Pantry, said the $200,000 will be used to help expand outreach to underserved areas. She said God's Pantry currently provides food to about 211,000 people, but the organization estimates that about 300,000 people may be in need.

    Dare to Care Food Bank, which serves Jefferson and surrounding counties, received $200,000; Elizabethtown-based Feeding America Kentucky's Heartland received $100,000; and the Kentucky Association of Food Banks received $100,000.

    I googled and in 2007 Wally world gave 272.9 million to charity making it the largest corporate donor to charity in the USA.

    They are such an evil company.

    Now think how many charities will suffer when idiots boycott Wal Mart.

    And consider the impact on their generally low paid work force when idiots boycott Wal Mart.

    This so doesn't work on me. It don't un-do who they really are. It's a diversion.

    What? They don't want people to know they are a discount retailer?

    Walmart does a lot of great things as a corporation. They are one of the leading big box retailers when it comes to going "green." All the new stores they are building now are taking green initiatives. One they just built nearby uses a local stream to power the lights in the parking lot. It also collects rainwater on the roof to water the plants in the nursery.

    As far as charity, few companies even come close.They donated several million to the University of Arkansas a few years ago, and just recently they gave another $1.5m for the UA Sustainability Research center, which is one of the leading research centers in the world.

    For all the "evil" that Walmart does, they do a lot to give back, too. Plus, if it weren't for them, families would be paying twice the price for groceries.
