The Walmart Foundation’s Hawaii State Giving Council recently announced $126,000 in grants from the first grant-giving cycle for 2013 to three Hawaii nonprofits — Family Promise of Hawaii, Hawaii Appleseed Center for Law and Economic Justice, and Junior Achievement of Hawaii.
“At Walmart, we understand that nonprofit organizations are essential to building stronger communities across the islands, said Rey Armijo, Hawaii market manager for Walmart. “We’re proud to give back to the communities we serve and are hopeful that Hawaii residents will feel a positive effect through these grants.”
