Wal-Mart Foundation Makes Donation to Chamber

Posted by Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, October 6, 2009

It is safe to say that most Mount Prospect residents were thrilled to see the renovated Wal-Mart store open in Mount Prospect Plaza in early August.  For months they had watched the construction and been curious to see the final product. 

But the Mount Prospect Chamber and other local charities have special reason to be thrilled by the recent opening. 

In conjunction with the grand opening, the Wal-Mart Foundation made a $1,000 donation to the Chamber’s fund to create a brochure of all the non-profit organizations and contacts.   

Checks were presented to several other local entities as well, including the police department, fire department, human services department and the Mount Prospect Lions Club Charities. Wal-Mart donated a total of over $37,000 to these and other organizations that are active in Mount Prospect.  

“We are thankful that Wal-Mart has chosen to re-introduce itself to the community in this manner,” stated MP Chamber Executive Director Jim Uszler. “Their commitment to our organization and the community of Mount Prospect is appreciated.”
