Ms. Lewis explained that, "Focusing on the schools with the highest level of need, each Walmart store, Sam's Club and Logistics Facility selects one local school each year." The goal is to help teachers set up their classrooms. Many teachers spend their own money to educate our children and the cards are to help the teachers offset out-of-pocket expenses. Joan Kister, Director of the PCLA said, "With more and more budget cuts, teachers are spending more money from their own small checks for basic supplies in classroom so this is so welcome." Ms. Kister also said that her staff is very appreciative of Walmart's support.
