WalMart Foundation provides $110,000 grant to Second Harvest Food Bank

We almost went through the week without mentioning a major contribution by the Walmart Foundation Washington State Giving Program to Spokane's Second Harvest Food Bank.

The award of $110,000 will be used by Second Harvest to buy  a new semi-tractor, expected to help increase the nonprofit’s food distribution to 28 million pounds annually by 2016.

That award is one of several announced by the mammoth U.S. and global retailer. The Arkansas-based company announced it has awarded $750,000 in Washington state grants in 2012, including $375,000 to nine nonprofit organizations in the second half of 2012.

Additional information about the program’s funding guidelines and application process are available online at www.walmartfoundation.org/stategiving.
