As Told to Good360 by FACT (Families and Communities Together)
FACT (Families and Communities Together) is an organization in Hannibal, MO made up of community members working together to develop and build stronger families and children. Our mission is to build, nurture and strengthen families by ensuring every child can become healthy, responsible and productive members of society. We joined the Walmart Retail Distribution Program in March 2019 and have worked with four Supercenters, which allows us to serve a variety of recipients including youth, adults, elderly and the disabled. Although we do use resources including vehicle fuel and maintenance, warehouse space and staff hours, we are able to provide for families in the community and follow through with our mission to collaborate with local people.
Most of the items we’ve received from Walmart are clothing, along with additional items such as home care products, charcoal, supplies and batteries. Supplies are currently the most useful to the population we serve, and the clothing will become beneficial to our clients as soon as we distribute them. While we are still fairly new to this work with Walmart, we thank Good360 for making it happen, and we believe it will be great for our community.
