Walmart Foundation gives $46,150 to Three Square
On July 27, Walmart, on behalf of the Walmart Foundation, presented Three Square Food Bank with a $46,150 State Giving grant to support the organization’s BackPack for Kids Program. Three Square is Southern Nevada’s only food bank providing food assistance to the residents of Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark Counties.
Following the check presentation, representatives from Three Square and Walmart packed backpacks for the BackPack for Kids Program. This initiative provides bags of nutritious, single-serving, ready-to-eat food items each Friday during the school year and summer months, to children who might otherwise go without during weekends and long breaks from school.
