Volunteers and Walmart collaborate to build a shelter for a rescued horse
· Aug 2, 2023 White Mountain Independent Newspaper
Equine WellBeing Rescue recently received a $1,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation and the Taylor Walmart store. The funds were used to buy many of the materials needed to construct a shelter for a blind orphaned colt that was found wandering alone in the Petrified Forest last year.
Griffin explained that one of their volunteers, who works at Walmart, found out about the Volunteerism Always Pays program, which provides grants to eligible organizations when Walmart or Sam’s Club associates volunteer. The program encourages full and part-time employees to volunteer their time to various non-profits in their local communities.
