SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – South Dakota families that struggle with hunger will now have better access to food thanks to a grant from Walmart.
Feeding South Dakota accepted a check for $138,000 from the Walmart Foundation this morning at the grand reopening of their store on South Louise Avenue. The money will be used to buy a semi truck for bringing food to families in rural parts of the state.
Mayor Mike Huether was there to thank Walmart for what he says the company has done for the city of Sioux Falls.
“They’re hiring more and more people they’re making such a great impact and for that the city of Sioux Falls is truly thankful,” said Mayor Huether.
Walmart also presented checks for $2,000 each to the Boys and Girls Club, Volunteers of America, and the South Dakota Special Olympics.
