Walmart Gives to Eastern Shore Literacy Council
The Eastern Shore Literacy Council announces the receipt of a $1,000 grant from Walmart Giving! The grant was awarded by the Walmart Community Grants Team and store manager for Walmart Store #4378 in Onley, Virginia.
The funds will be used throughout 2022 to send an early reader chapter book to each five-year old graduate of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.
Walmart believes in strengthening local communities and empowers each store to support local community programs. Each year, U.S. stores award local grants ranging from $250 to $5,000 to address the unique needs of a variety of local organizations and the community.
The Eastern Shore Literacy Council, a Dolly Parton Imagination Library sponsor, covers the cost of an age-appropriate book and mailing each month to any registered age-eligible child residing on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. To register visit www.imaginationlibrary.com.
