Walmart Corp Office forces stores to Remove Toys for Tots Donation Boxes
The Marine Corps League, organizing the annual ‘Toys for Tots’ toy drive for families in need in the Reno/Sparks area, says local Walmart stores have removed donation boxes from area locations.
The group said it had donation boxes set up at area Walmart locations but has now learned that Walmart has removed those boxes. A representative for the group says they have not yet been able to get a clear answer from the stores as to why the boxes were removed but one store official told them the donation boxes go against Walmart’s no soliciting policy.
The group told Channel 2 News they were instructed to contact Walmart’s corporate offices but they have yet to have their phone calls returned. Channel 2 News has also tried to reach Walmart Corporate Communications but have not had our phone calls or e-mails returned. We also tried to get comment from a local Walmart but were told no managers were available to speak to us at the west 7th Street store and instructed us to call Corporate Communications.
The Reno Toys for Tots group has had donation barrels at Walmart locations in previous years and are still waiting to find out where the donation boxes went after store officials removed them.
