Walmart Foundation Commits $500,000 to Improving Emergency Preparedness for the 54 Million Americans with Disabilities
Date:7/9/2009

WASHINGTON, July 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Walmart Foundation has made a $500,000 grant to further the work of the National Organization on Disability's (N.O.D.) Emergency Preparedness Initiative (EPI). N.O.D. is nationally recognized amongst emergency managers and the disability community as the only cross-disability organization with a fully dedicated emergency preparedness program and personnel experienced in emergency management and disability issues.

The grant from the Walmart Foundation will support EPI's mission to ensure that the needs of the 54 million men, women, and children with disabilities - one-fifth of the U.S. population - are taken into account in emergency planning and response. EPI's outreach, education and awareness efforts aim to position people with disabilities as a central component of emergency preparedness plans at all levels, while also ensuring that people with disabilities take steps to prepare themselves.

"We are honored to receive this grant from the Walmart Foundation," said Carol Glazer, N.O.D. President. "The aftermath of September 11th exposed an obvious vacuum in the emergency preparedness universe. We created EPI to address the critical need to educate a wide range of audiences about how to successfully implement emergency procedures for people with disabilities. With the help of generous funding from organizations like Walmart we can continue to expand our work and build on our success."

"At Walmart, helping communities is what we do every day, and when a crisis strikes, that charge becomes an even greater priority," said Margaret McKenna, president of the Walmart Foundation. "Our recent grant to the National Organization on Disability is evidence of our commitment to supporting local disaster relief efforts. We are proud to support the expansion and growth of this program."
