On Black Friday, Making Change at Walmart released a national ad as part of its “Give Back Friday” initiative to draw attention to the struggles of Walmart workers to feed and support their families. Making Change at Walmart, in partnership with UFCW locals, supported and hosted food drives across the country as part of a goal to feed 100,000 Walmart workers and families this holiday season.
“Give Back Friday” was focused on helping hard-working Walmart workers who are paid so poorly that they must rely on assistance from food banks and use food stamps. During the entire Black Friday week, Making Change at Walmart, community partners, and other organizations hosted food drives in cities across the country with a goal to feed 100,000 Walmart workers and families though the holidays.
