NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The Walmart Foundation has donated $25,000 to Mission Norman to help provide food and resources to needy Oklahomans.

Mission Norman is a nonprofit organization that’s supported solely by volunteers and charitable individuals. They provide meals to about 3,000 people a month.

Gene Barnes, founder of Mission Norman, says the organization is grateful that Walmart supports its mission to provide food and shelter to those in need. Barnes says there are many costs in running a facility like Mission Norman, including the cost of electricity for a walk-in refrigerator and freezer.

The Walmart Foundation’s State Giving Program supports organizations that create opportunities so people can live better, awarding grants that have a long-lasting, positive impact on communities across the U.S. Walmart donated more than $30 million last year in Oklahoma alone.
