Media Advisory - Wal-Mart Canada Presents $1.4 Million Cheque to Canadian Red Cross



    Wal-Mart Stores and SAM'S CLUBs raise and contribute record funding to
    support local disaster relief for communities across Canada

    OTTAWA, Sept. 24 /CNW Telbec/ -

    
    WHAT:     During its recent Canadian Red Cross fundraising campaign,
              Wal-Mart stores and SAM'S CLUBs across Canada raised and
              contributed a record $1.4 million in cash and in-kind
              donations. Funds raised and contributed will support local
              disaster relief in communities across the country for Canadians
              in need. Wal-Mart's Mississauga-based home office matched each
              store's contribution, up to $2,000.

              As the leading corporate sponsor of the Canadian Red Cross,
              Wal-Mart stores held special events during their annual
              fundraising campaign, including donations at the registers,
              hosting in-store charity drives and teaming up with suppliers
              to raise money for the Canadian Red Cross.

              Wal-Mart would like to thank its customers and suppliers for
              their generous donations and support to such a worthy cause by
              hosting a cheque presentation ceremony on Tuesday. The ceremony
              will include refreshments, a cheque presentation and comments
              by Randy Gerrie, Regional Vice President for Wal-Mart and
              Francois Couillard, Deputy Secretary General, Operations and
              COO for Canadian Red Cross.
