ELMIRA, N.Y. -- The WalMart Foundation is continuing a long-standing relationship with the Food Bank of the Southern Tier.
Wednesday morning, WalMart Foundation members presented the organization with a check for $35,000. The money will go towards the Food Bank's capital campaign, Strengthening the Root of Local Hunger Relief and the expansion of the Mobile Food Pantry project.
Foundation members say they continue to help the Food Bank because they both share the same vision.
"The Food Bank has a great culture, it stands for good things, we help people in the communities in a way when they need help, first of all and when they're looking for resources. It's amazing when talking to these guys here, the amount of volunteers that come in," said Michael Judd, WalMart Market manager.
Judd says a few years back, the foundation donated a Mobile Pantry truck to help serve the Southern Tier.
