Red Cross Receives $250,000 From Wal-Mart to Assist With Southern California Wildfire Relief Efforts
Date:10/23/2007

"Governor Schwarzenegger has shown great leadership to assist the individuals who are affected by this disaster," said Henry Jordan, Wal-Mart Regional General Manager for the state of California. "Joining with the governor in his call to action, we are mobilizing resources, determining what is needed most and working to provide relief. We applaud local and city officials who are on-the-ground and responding to the needs of their constituents."

Wal-Mart has long been recognized as a corporate leader in the area of disaster relief. The company in 2005 helped the victims of Hurricane Katrina by donating more than $32 million in cash to aid emergency relief efforts, which included $2 million in contributions to the Red Cross. Last year, Wal-Mart provided more than $2 million in disaster relief funds to assist with everything from floods and tornadoes to wildfires and winter storms nationwide. A long-standing partnership between Wal-Mart and the American Red Cross has made many of these efforts possible.

"Wal-Mart has a long history of increasing our community support during times of disaster," said Margaret McKenna, president of the Wal-Mart Foundation. "The wildfires raging across Southern California have impacted customers, communities and our own associates. It was an easy decision to move forward with aiding relief efforts."
