Note: As of May 10, Walmart's Snacks for Students is still ongoing as part of the Champions for Kids Program.
According to the 2010 U.S. Census, over 16 million American children live in poverty, making hunger a daily challenge for families in need. Champions for Kids, General Mills, Kellogg’s, Emerald and Kettle Chips have joined forces to make it simple for communities to provide basic resources for students through in-store donations. From February 18 to March 4, U.S. customers at more than 3,600 participating Walmart stores can purchase snacks and breakfast items for children and place them inside designated donation bins. All donations made in-store will stay in the local community and be distributed through school districts or youth-based organizations.
The CVC has signed up to collect these donations and ensure they reach Pasco County children.

Become a Volunteer
Beside the fact that more and more Americans are being drawn to community service in response to our President's call to action, people inherently unite in times of real need - especially when we share a common struggle. The financial crisis in the fall of 2008 hit our country hard, resulting in a disastrous housing market, thousands of lost jobs and the closing of many businesses. This turn of events had grave impact on so many, and yet Americans still pulled together to find a way to help each other - through volunteerism.
