Local Las Vegas-area Walmart associates will deliver approximately 900 coats on Thursday, December 10, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. Halle Hewetson School is a kindergarten through 5th grade school and is located at 701 North 20th Street in Las Vegas.

“I want to thank Walmart for their generous gift to our students,” said Halle Hewetson Elementary School Assistant Principal Patrick Grass. “As a result of the donation, our children will have a new coat this winter to keep them warm and dry.”

“At Walmart, we believe in making the majority of our charitable donations at the local level, where we can have the greatest and most positive impact in the communities we serve,” said Aaron J. Rios, senior manager public affairs and government relations at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. “Walmart strives to be a good neighbor and to support charitable causes that are important to our customers, their families and our associates, and we hope these new coats will keep some very special children warm this holiday season.”
