ERIE, Pa. (WJET/WFXP/YourErie.com) — Walmart announced it is launching a campaign to help those affected by Hurricane Ida.
From Sept. 2-8, all Walmart stores and Sam’s Clubs across the U.S. will match dollar-for-dollar donations up to $5 million.
You can donate at registers and self-checkout stations in Walmart stores and Sam’s Clubs nationwide.
Your donations will go to American Red Cross chapters in Pa. and those serving the Gulf Coast, to directly benefit those who have been affected by hurricanes, floods and fires in 2021.
The register campaign is in addition to the $5 million commitment for response efforts to Hurricane Ida announced Monday, for a total of up to $10 million from Walmart, the Walmart Foundation and Sam’s Club to help with disaster relief and response.
