A Baton Rouge Walmart surprised store associate Grace Guy with a $10,000 grant for her recommended nonprofit, Outstanding Mature Girlz Organization (OMG), on Thursday.
The grant was awarded after Guy’s recent post about an act of kindness was selected during the Walmart Associate Challenge. The nation wide company challenge asked associates to share how they are “sparking” kindness in their communities using the hashtags “#SparkKindness” and #WalmartAssociateChallenge.”
Guy has been volunteering for the OMG organization for two years as a mentor for girls from Baton Rouge, and across Louisiana.
“Outstanding Mature Girlz serves, mentors and educates girls in the areas of HIV/AIDS, STDs, health and well-being, while also giving back to Baton Rouge and other surrounding areas through community service,” Walmart stated in a press release.
Guy is one of only 12 associates across the country to be selected by Walmart.
