Walmart Truck Drivers Raise $1,776
for Keavy Elementary
London, KY- The London transportation office has selected Keavy Elementary to receive a $1,776 donation as part of Walmart’s support of local communities. Private Fleet truck drivers for Walmart already among the safest drivers in the country-drove extra carefully during the week from July 20 through July 26, 2019. For every accident-free mile they drove during that week, Walmart made a financial contribution to local schools.
Walmart is donating one cent for each accident-free mile driven by the drivers at each Walmart transportation office. A school in the home region of each transportation office will receive at least $1,000 and as much as $2,000 based on the safety performance of local drivers. During this year’s program, Walmart Transportation offices nationwide contributed to more than $100,000 to schools in their communities.
“This is just one of the many ways Walmart supports education across the country,” said David Gleisner, general transportation manager at the London Walmart distribution center. “It’s also a great way to engage all our drivers in raising money for our local schools.”
Walmart’s Private Fleet is one of the largest in the United States and its 74 offices, including more than 9,000 drivers, support more than the 4,500 Walmart stores, Sam’s Club locations and Neighborhood Markets in the U.S.
