Cleveland Walmart held a celebration on Oct. 1 for the official start of its online grocery pick-up program with a ribbon cutting with the Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce and the presentation of community grants to organizations that have gone above and beyond in recent weeks.

Store Manager Aaron Weddington presented checks to three local churches – The Sanctuary of Cleveland, Calvary Baptist Church of Cleveland and Hi-Way Tabernacle Church in Tarkington. All three churches opened their doors and pantries to victims during Tropical Storm Imelda, which is why they were chosen for the grants, said Weddington.

Additionally, $1,000 grants will be given to Cleveland Fire Department and Tarkington Volunteer Fire Department for their efforts to rescue victims of the storm. Those grants will be presented at a later date.
