(Seguin) — The Seguin Walmart store’s recent re grand opening event was more than just about celebrating the box store giant. It was also about recognizing not only its role in the community but its commitment to those who help make lives better for their customers and their families.
As part of opening its doors to its new $6 million renovation, Seguin Walmart on Friday presented big checks to several non-profit organizations.
Among those walking away with $700 was the Allan Dreibrodt Memorial Foundation. Dalena Krueger, who was on hand to accept the gift, says the group which supports area youth is thankful for Walmart’s continued support.
“It’s super exciting more to be able to help us support youth and agriculture in memory of my dad. We received a check from them as well last year. We just applied for the grant and then they accepted our application and it’s amazing in our small community that a corporate level will actually do that for us. It’s huge,” said Krueger.
Also presented with $500 was the Guadalupe County Youth Show. President Dustin Morgenroth says the support is just phenomenal.
“That’s the whole purpose. We are here to support the youth – the 4H and FFA students obviously so we couldn’t do it without companies like Walmart giving back to the community because that’s what it is all about for these kids because most of them use it towards their college or for their projects next year which projects are huge for the kids because it teaches them a lot of responsibility and accountability so it’s just a great program and we couldn’t do it without somebody like Walmart and other companies in the community that support us,” said Morgenroth.
