Durham Rescue Mission Receives $25K Donation from Walmart

The Durham Rescue Mission received a $25,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation’s State Giving Program. Tony Gooch, our Director of Development Operations, met with Walmart Regional General Manager John Mims and Walmart Market Managers Brad Barritt and Nicole Brown-Hardy to receive the check!

“Walmart and the Walmart Foundation are delighted to support the Durham Rescue Mission,” said Brooke Mueller, Director of Government Relations and Public Affairs at Walmart. “Through this grant, the Mission will be able to purchase more food and provide more men, women, and children with the nutritious meals they need.”

The Durham Rescue Mission relies heavily on the support we receive from the community. This generous gift from Walmart will provide a quarter of the annual food budget needed for the year!

Dr. Ernie Mills, CEO/Founder of the Durham Rescue Mission said, “What a tremendous help this grant will be in helping to provide nutritious meals for those who come to the Durham Rescue Mission! We are so grateful for Walmart’s partnership in helping those in need in our community.”

Thank you, Walmart!
