Walmart Partnership Provides Needed Goods to Homeless and Low-Income Communities

  • Lives Impacted: 800-1000+

Women That Care (WTC) is an organization that brings women together to focus on the needs of the homeless and underserved communities.  The organization operates solely on donations and supporter contributions. By volunteering alongside various agencies to help provide relief to those in need, Women That Care can host four major distribution events annually.

Thanks to a partnership with Walmart through Good360, Women That Care received household items, toiletries, toys, back to school items, baby goods, seasonal items, tools, sheets, curtains, and more.  Many of the clients are starting over and this partnership allows Women That Care to offer a helping hand and critical items to support those in need.

For example, a single mom of four (with one on the way) came into the pantry for food and baby items.  She needed a baby crib, highchair, car seat, and stroller. The same day Women That Care received a phone call from its Walmart for a pickup. The donation consisted of precisely what she needed.  The mother was thrilled and forever grateful because she had nothing.

Thanks to Good360 and Walmart, Women That Care gave her almost everything she needed for the newborn and her older children.
