We are working hard to ensure all our associates in the affected area are safe and customers have access to the essential items needed during this difficult time. Associates have been working closely with the Red Cross and local government officials to understand how we can best help. At this time, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have committed at least $1 million in support, and our local teams will continue to provide extra assistance over the coming days and weeks as we learn more about the damage and what is needed.

Many of you are asking how you can help. Click here to support those affected through a donation to the American Red Cross. To see if your local store is open, check our frequently updated list of store closures.

Walmart has a long history of providing aid in times of disasters, helping communities prepare and recover by donating emergency supplies, such as food and water, home and personal products. Since 2005, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have donated more than $60 million in cash and in-kind donations in response to disaster events.

Stay tuned to Walmart Today and @WalmartNewsroom as we collect updates from our volunteers and associates helping to address the needs of those in storm-distressed areas.
