Walmart donates $50,000 to Brown County's Salvation Army pantry

Walmart gave the Salvation Army of Brown County a $50,000 grant to help feed the hungry this holiday season.
Green Bay, Wis.(WFRV)- The Salvation Army of Brown County Pantry got some Christmas cheer today... in the form of a $50,000 dollar grant. The donation is from the Walmart Foundation for Vital Hunger Relief in Green bay and will go directly towards local food pantry programs to help feed the less fortunate this holiday season.

Captain Ken Shiels of the Salvation Army of Brown County says this time of year the need is greater than ever.

"The need in this community has grown, more and more each month we're seeing more people coming to us so we want to do what we can to get them on their feet and give them the tools they need to stay on their feet and this grant is going to help us do that."

The grant was not donated for their Red Kettle Campaign, rather the Salvation Army pantry that is open year round. While Walmart has made donations in the past, this is the first donation of this size over the past several years.
