Hunger Free Colorado is one of three non-profit organizations selected for the Walmart Associate Choice Program of Colorado — a statewide voting contest through Monday, Aug. 6, for associates of Walmart and Sam’s Club — where the first-place charity will receive a $50,000 grant.
The Walmart Foundation sponsors the annual Associate Choice Program in all fifty states, and the Colorado program will award a $50,000 grant to the non-profit organization that receives the most associate votes during the designated voting period of June 30 through August 6, 2012. The second-place charity will receive $20,000 and the organization in third place will get a $10,000 grant. The state’s grant winners will be announced at the conclusion of the voting period.
Whether you are an associate or not, you can help us ensure that no Coloradan goes hungry.
