The Children’s Home Society of Idaho has been chosen as one of five non-profit organizations in Idaho to contend for a $100,000 grant from The Walmart Foundation Associate Choice Program.
Walmart associates will cast their votes for one of five Idaho non-profit organizations, including the Idaho Meth Project, Idaho Public Television, Special Olympics Idaho, and The Hunger Coalition, now through August 6.
“Thank you for the nomination,” said Teresa Alexander, CEO of the Children’s Home Society of Idaho. “We are honored to be among the five finalists. Without the support of foundations like Walmart, we could not continue our mission to improve the lives of children in our community.”
The Walmart Foundation strives to create opportunities so people can live better. In its giving efforts, Walmart strives to help underserved populations
and support organizations that give individuals access to a better life. Walmart believes in giving back locally to deserving non-profit organizations whose mission statement mirrors their foundation objectives. Thus, the Walmart Foundation sponsors the annual Associate Choice Program in all fifty states. Thousands of Walmart associates will cast a vote for the non-profit they feel is most deserving of the grant. The winners will be announced in late August.
