Valley Wal-Mart stores raising funds for relief effort

September 16, 2001

The Wal-Mart stores in El Centro and Calexico will be raising funds for the national relief effort in light of the recent terrorist attacks on the East Coast.

The corporate offices of Wal-Mart have donated $2 million to the effort and are encouraging individual stores to help raise more money.

Susan Volz, assistant manager at the El Centro Wal-Mart, said, "We do a lot of community service and now are asking for the community's help for the national relief effort."

Large jars have been placed inside the stores to take any donations.
