Wal-Mart gives back to the community

The Amelia Wal-Mart Supercenter is giving back to the Clermont County community.

In a check presentation ceremony and celebration at the Amelia supercenter store April 12, representatives of 16 different Clermont County agencies and organizations were on hand to receive checks totalling more than $15,000.

As each agency’s name was announced, they were asked to give a brief description of their organization’s mission before receiving an individual check from Wal-Mart store manager Phillip Nichols.

“From Wal-Mart’s perspective, this is all about community involvement,” said Nichols. “Wal-Mart stores do this for their respective communities every year. Being here in the this community gives us the opportunity to be a good neighbor, and all of us here at the Amelia Wal-Mart are grateful for and embrace that opportunity.”
