BLOG: The Latest on Hurricane Harvey Support and Response
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Walmart associates all over the country are working around the clock to address the needs of those affected by the storm. After learning that 150 associates in Corpus Christi, Texas, were impacted and in need of assistance, a group of associates from Store 757 in Pleasanton, Texas, rolled up their sleeves to pitch in and help. Store Manager Rosendo Medina assembled a large team of associates to gather supplies and other essentials.
While some associates prepared hot meals and care packages with basic supplies, others worked together to pack large boxes of snacks and other relief items. Rosendo and his team traveled two hours to Corpus Christi to deliver four truckloads of food and supplies to the impacted associates and their families. Walmart Associates from Store 447 in Del Rio, Texas, prepared more than 100 care packages for families impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
“Giving back to the community is so important,” said Assistant Manager Lucy Leandro, who helped organize the effort. The care packages included towels, medications, snacks and other essentials. “We want to help those affected by the storm however we can.”
