Our current SIMPLE Giving program is taking place in over 3,800 Walmart stores across the United States, collecting items kids need--such as snacks and personal care items. If your Walmart store is participating, simply purchase items and place them in the donation bins at the front of the store.
What does it cost?
It is totally free to participate!
Who else is participating?
Our SIMPLE Giving Programs are in individual stores selected by the program’s participating retailer.
How many donations should the district expect?
While we cannot guarantee the number of items each district or organization will receive, having your community involved greatly increases the rate of success. The results vary widely. Some communities have reaped well over a thousand donations in one drive. It often comes down to the people behind it and the community’s involvement.
Who benefits from the program? Which Walmart stores are participating?
School nurses, social workers, homeless student liaisons, and other community champions distribute the donated items to children in the school district or community where each Walmart store is located. To see a list of participating stores, click here.
Additionally, Champions for Kids will provide a total of up to $45,000 in awards to the schools or organizations receiving the top donation totals from a single store. These awards can be used to provide nutrition education, nutrition services, and other vital resources for children in need. Find out more by reading the Terms & Conditions.
How will I find SIMPLE Giving products and donation bins in my Walmart store?
Just look for the purple product display near the register. This display has suggested items to donate, but you're welcome to choose any kid-friendly items that you'd like to give. Once you've purchased your items, drop them into the donation bins after checkout.
What if I don't live in an area that is involved in a SIMPLE Giving program?
We’ll be rolling out SIMPLE Giving in more Walmart stores throughout the year, so be on the lookout—and sign up for our e-newsletter—for opportunities to participate in a SIMPLE Giving campaign near you. Until then, you can always get inspired and involved with our SIMPLE Service projects to make a difference right now, right where you are.
