Walmart assisting with hurricane relief

In response to the severe weather impacting the country, Walmart is committing up to $10 million in additional support for 2017 U.S. hurricane relief efforts.

This will bring the total committed by Walmart to hurricane relief efforts this year to $30 million, building on the support provided in response to Hurricane Harvey that hit the Gulf region .

With devastating storms and flooding hitting the United States, and building on the response to raise funds for Hurricane Harvey, Walmart is launching a new customer campaign with the American Red Cross to assist with hurricane relief more broadly. As part of this new effort, Walmart will match customer donations two-to-one with cash and product donations of up to $10 million to support American Red Cross disaster-response efforts. These donations will help those impacted by hurricanes in 2017 by providing shelter, food, comfort and emergency assistance.
