      Prevent Heartland children from going hungry with a few clicks

      Would you like the help stop childhood hunger in the Heartland? If you answered yes, you can do just that thanks to Walmart with just a few clicks of the mouse. All you have to do is go to www.Walmart.com/hunger and vote for The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri. The top 40 food banks with the highest votes get a $45,000 grant towards their cause. Right now the heartlandâ??s region is on the bubble which means there is a chance we wonâ??t get the grant. So, every vote counts.

      â??We are one of them that gets a chance to receive $45,000. We need everyone to get out and vote and you can vote every single day at www.walmart.com/hunger,â?? said Susan Dublin, Regional Coordinator, The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri.

      â??$45,000 will contribute to 250 children being supported through the buddy pack program for the entire year,â?? said Ben St. Pierre, a Walmart Shift Manager.

      The website once again is www.walmart.com/hunger. To enhance the heartlandâ??s chances of winning the $45,000 grant, be sure to vote everyday. The contest ends April 30.
