Thank you to our Walmart Volunteers!

Two teams from Walmart locations in Hurst and Keller volunteered at the Community Food Bank on Wednesday, April 4. While this was the first time serving at our facility, these volunteers were no stranger to community service. Donna Scott from the Neighborhood Market in Keller shared that she was in her element to serve the hungry who were coming through the food line that morning. “I buy things on clearance to give away to people in need, and I do that through my church [Christ Wesleyan on Harwood], and I love this kind of stuff, and it’s so nice to see Walmart and Sam’s Club food helping so many people. This is awesome.” For Holli Farris, a customer service manager at Hurst, serving at the food bank was just another opportunity to continue her lifelong compassionate service to others. “This is my first time here, and I really like this concept. My family goes every other weekend to feed the homeless on the street, sometimes in Dallas and sometimes in Fort Worth. We go to different locations. When I was growing up, we’d pick up a homeless person during Christmas and have Christmas with them and buy them presents. It’s cool to be part of it. We got one man a heavy jacket, gloves, and shoes. When we dropped him back off, he was just crying, and he hugged me.” We at the Community Food Bank are so appreciative of the volunteers from Walmart who serve not just with their hands, but also with their hearts.
