The Ladies of Charity of Knoxville have received a $2,000 local community grant from Walmart Foundation.
Five days a week, the Ladies of Charity Emergency Assistance Program provides immediate assistance with food, clothing, and other resources to needy individuals and families in the Knoxville community.
“We are grateful for the generosity of Walmart and sincerely appreciate Bryan Spears, manager, and Alec Salem, operations manager at the Walmart Neighborhood Market #3959 at 3120 McKamey Road in Knoxville, for facilitating this grant on our behalf.

On behalf of the Ladies of Charity Knoxville board, our employees, volunteers, and clients, thank you for enabling us to continue to be the ‘helping hand’ to those in need.”
