SHERMAN, Tex. -- Wal-Mart is lending a helping hand to local organizations. The Sherman store handed out six grants to businesses Friday morning in an effort to improve our community.

A total of $5,600 was distributed between the groups, which included the Sherman Fire Department, the Sherman Police Department, and the Sherman Public Library.

Wal-Mart officials say each company must go through an application process which is then approved by the Wal-Mart Foundation.

"Our company allows us the flexibility of grants to pass out to community organizations in need," Bryan Lambert at Sherman Wal-Mart says.

These are just a few of the many grants Wal-Mart distributes throughout the year.

    $5600! Thats all?? Good grief, they're the nations largest employer, and probably has a profit margin that rivals Exxon/Mobil!!! And thats because they don't pay squat to the hard working men and women in their employ. C'mon...let loose of some more of the Benjamins. Our community needs it!
