New club celebrates opening by providing local grants
To staff the new Burleson club, Sam's Club has provided the opportunity
for associates to remain with the club as it transitions to a new
building. Sam's Club and parent company Walmart currently employ more
than 154,000 people in the state of Texas and have provided more than
$111 million through cash and in-kind donations from store, clubs and
the Walmart Foundation.
"Our associates are excited to celebrate the new club by giving to
organizations that are near and dear to our hearts," said Perraut. "I
look forward to many years in the Burleson community and appreciate the
opportunity to work together with its leaders to make this an even
better city for our children."
In that spirit of giving back, Sam's Club has selected several local
non-profit organizations to benefit from special grants totaling $10,000
as part of the Grand Opening celebration, including: American Lung
Association, Cariety Foundation, City of Burleson, David Bauman
Foundation, Epilepsy Foundation of Texas, Mundofox Canal 52, National MS
Society, Sam's Search 4 a Cure and Special Olympics of Texas.
