Walmart manager stays on store roof to help raise money for charity
Walmart stores across the country are teaming up with the Children’s Miracle Network to raise money for local hospitals.
The staff at a Walmart in Manahawkin came up with a creative idea to help raise awareness and collect funds. The manager of the store went up on the roof and refused to come down until they met their goal. After five hours, the store raised $700.
"The campaign keeps getting bigger every year. And we're thinking of more ideas to raise more money for the kids. That's what it's all about. That's what we want to do and that's what our associates are passionate about as well,” says Walmart manager Joe Devaney.
The funds will go to the Children’s Specialized Hospital in Toms River. The money helps with medical equipment and anything else the kids may need.
Employees will be selling hot dogs and lemonade for $1 Saturday to continue raising funds. The fundraiser runs through the end of September.
