United Way of Northwest Florida to Benefit from Walmart Campaign

The News Herald – Jan. 15, 2021 – The United Way of Northwest Florida stands to benefit from a new Walmart Check-Out campaign through Jan. 29 that lets shoppers round up their purchases for a donation to the nonprofit.

According to a press release from United Way officials, Walmart will support communities across the U.S. through its online-only round-up and donate campaign.  

When shoppers make a purchase through Walmart.com or on the Walmart app, they can add a donation at checkout. Donations will then be distributed to local United Ways based on the zip code of the donor’s credit card used for the purchase.

Donations received from the six-county service area of Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson and Washington counties will benefit the United Way of Northwest Florida.

“This nationwide partnership with Walmart is a perfect example of the exceptional support Walmart shows in each of its communities,” United Way of Northwest Florida Communications Director Ken McVay said. “We are extremely blessed to be a part of this partnership.”
