Walmart Community Grant Benefits Seniors Through Warm Hearth Foundation

April 03, 2022

The Walmart Community Grants Team and Facility #1292 (Christiansburg) recently awarded a $1000 grant to the Warm Hearth Foundation for the Micah’s Program at Warm Hearth Village. The Foundation will use funds to help fight food insecurity by providing food and meals to village seniors who meet Federal low-income guidelines through the Micah’s Pantry.  Micah’s programs at Warm Hearth Village include a variety of opportunities like fresh produce, prepared meals, gardens on campus to grow and tend, shelf-stable groceries, pet food and personal care items.  Facility #1292 is thrilled to support the Foundation’s work in the community and shares a desire to provide local impact through grant funding.

Majdeddin Syed Issa & Ghalia Martini, two residents benefitting from the Micah Program, said they appreciate the Foundation’s help. “I like that the packages list the ingredients and I love getting fresh vegetables. We share the items we don’t need with neighbors who do,” Martini said. “Majdeddin and I are both so grateful for this program.”
