BENTONVILLE, Ark., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- In response to raging wildfires across Southern California, the American Red Cross has received its first substantial donation to provide support for disaster relief. The Wal-Mart Foundation today announced a cash contribution of $250,000 to enable quick response to those affected by the fires.

Since Sunday, the Red Cross has been providing food, shelter, counseling and other assistance to thousands of individuals most critically affected by the fires. More than 500 Red Cross workers have been assisting these evacuees over the last several days, and the organization is expanding its services rapidly as the needs and changes escalate. Currently, thousands of supplies and volunteers are en route to California as the wildfires continue to spread.

"The Red Cross is a way for neighbors to help each other during times of disaster," said Mark W. Everson, president and CEO of the American Red Cross. "We welcome Wal-Mart to the family of Red Cross supporters who are reaching out to the people affected by the severe wildfires. Because of their generosity, the Red Cross is able to provide crucial aid such as cots, food, comfort kits and a shoulder to lean on to those in need."

In addition to the contribution from the company's Foundation, local Wal-Mart stores and Sam's Clubs in the state of California have responded with donations of water, clothing, blankets and other much-needed merchandise. In total, 20-plus trucks with more than $350,000 worth of merchandise have made deliveries to help with relief efforts. Wal-Mart is also setting up collection sites in each of its 208 California-based stores and Sam's Clubs where customers can make cash donations to help support ongoing relief efforts.
